The Present study deals with the water quality index of ground water of various locations of Babhnan town during Feb-Apr. (2013). Ten water samples from hand pumps at various locations were collected using standard methods and analyzed for pH, turbidity, chloride, total hardness, nitrate, fluoride, iron, and free chlorine. The results shows that the ground water from all sampling sites is very hard and beyond permissible limit provided by WHO. Over all water quality of Babhnan town is very poor and unsuitable for drinking purposes.
