I have this code in my document

\chapter{Copyright Permission for Figure \ref{android:graph:layers}}\label{app:A}
    \includepdf[pages=-,nup=1x3,delta=0 -55]{figures/contentLicense.pdf}

But the output does not include the title of the chapter, it only outputs the the pdf pages that were included, but not the title. If I add some text just under the chapter as:

\chapter{Copyright Permission for Figure \ref{android:graph:layers}}\label{app:A}
    \includepdf[pages=-,nup=1x3,delta=0 -55]{figures/contentLicense.pdf}

Then it will output the chapter title followed by the text, but the included pdf will be in the next page by itself.

How do I make the title appear in the same page as the chapter title, without inserting any text in-between

    This is the default behaviour of \includepdf - clear the existing page and insert the pages as-is. What you're asking is to overlay some content on the first included page? What if the overlaid content goes over top of the included page content? – Werner Nov 10 '15 at 23:58
  • Welcome! As @Werner says, \includepdf starts a new page by default. That much is usual behaviour. However, it is not usual behaviour for a preceding \chapter{} command to be entirely ignored. You need to show us the code in the form of a small compilable document which we can use to reproduce the behaviour. – cfr Nov 11 '15 at 0:03
  • Does my answer help? That answer provides a number of new commands for including PDF files on pages with chapter titles and/or headers. It tries to handle the spacing and so on in a sensible way i.e. the overlaid-content problem shouldn't occur. But it depends on using the new commands: it does not magically make \chapter or \includepdf do what they are not designed to do. – cfr Nov 11 '15 at 0:11
  • The other option, if your needs are less elaborate, is to use \includegraphics as shown by Harish Kumar's answer and also illustrated in the question itself. – cfr Nov 11 '15 at 0:16
