Water is the biggest necessity for life and in developing countries like India groundwater is the most important source for drinking water, irrigation and industrial purposes. But due to widespread use of harmful chemicals in agriculture, pollution of rivers, industrial effluents etc. groundwater is getting increasingly contaminated with pollutants. This is creating chaotic situations in various parts of our country including Punjab. Considering the ever growing awareness on groundwater pollution, a study was conducted to analyse the physicochemical characteristics of the groundwater of Jalalabaad village in Tarn Taran district of Punjab situated on the bank of the river Beas. Groundwater samples were taken from hand pumps with depth of 50-75 feet and tube wells with depth of 200-225 feet. The results revealed that different parameters like pH, chlorides, conductivity, hardness, calcium content and total dissolved solids were in the permissible limits of Bureau of Indian Standards. However the concentration of nitrates was very low in both the samples.
