Continuous degradation in the quality of available groundwater resources is due to increasing global pollution. As a result, systematic assessment of water quality appears to become an absolute necessity. For carrying out a systematic study, forty groundwater samples were collected from tube wells, hand pumps and wells of different villages of Sanganer tehsil. Samples were analyzed for physico-chemical characteristics influencing water quality for irrigation such as Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), Electrical Conductivity (EC), Soluble Sodium Percentage (SSP), Permeability Index (PI), Residual Sodium Bicarbonate (RSBC), Magnesium Adsorption Ratio (MAR), Kelly’s Ratio (KR) and Sodium Adsorption Ratio (SAR) with observed ranges 283.08 ? 1950.20 mg/L, 530 ? 4850 μmhos/cm, 16.38 - 82.82%, 48.92 - 833.60%, -16.69 ? 10.2 meq/L, 17.50 ? 66.67%, 1.78 ? 11.03 and 1.26 ? 16.34 respectively.
