The present study deals primarily with the arsenic contamination occur in ground water in all over India, its causes, effects and recommendation. Arsenic above permissible limit in ground water of phreatic younger alluvium of Ganga and Ghaghara rivers along meandering course and shallow aquifer, has reported as the main source of arsenic contamination. Several studies have been carried out on this context; which is still limited by a lack of data thus, a review study has been undertaken on the sources, causes and health prospective, arsenic is likely to disastrous effects on human. Due to excess of Arsenic in ground water people are reported to be suffering from diseases like skin cancer, ulcer and pigmentation in skin and hardening in palm skin. Different analytical methods have been proposed for further analysis to provide details to know the quantity of arsenic in water, its impact, identify the risk factors and possible to makes recommendation for the prevention and management of arsenic poisoning cases and study of probability of other heavy metals. This review work suggests that the arsenic concentration increase day by day through different channel. It’s directly and indirectly affecting human being; needs to be investigating thoroughly arsenic problem in India.
