A statistical analysisof ambient air in Aurangabad City (M.S.) during the year 2005-2010 and its concentration of SO2, NOX, RSPM and SPM are monitored at selected three residential site during rainy, winter and summer season. Results shows that SO2, NOX, RSPM are well below the permissible limit and SPM is above the permissible limits. The sampling sites are a heavy traffic intersection cum residential area located within the Aurangabad City. It is observed that pollutant values always exceed the NAAQS value throughout the sampling. The annual mean values for all sampling sites and the statistical calculations made on data shows SO2, NOX year wise and sidewise significant and RSPM and SPM year wise non-significant and sidewise significant. This study is that the data collected year wise for all parameters on different sites and concentration is also discussed. One of the major sources of air pollution in Aurangabad (M.S.) is the area pollutions from dense residential, heavy vehicles, industries etc.
