Two-band model for the substitutionary binary alloy of different rare earth metals with relatively simple 4f multiplet structure placed within the transition metal host matrix was proposed and applied to (Gd1-xYx)2In. The main interaction which causes the magnetic part of the resistivity was assumed in a form of stochastically distributed in space s-f interaction. The calculated high temperature spin disorder resistivity of (Gd1-xYx)2In alloys reproduces well the experimental alloys data.
