Abundance, community composition and density of zooplankton were analyzed in the water body of Jal Ghar Bhiwani Haryana (India) from January, 2016 to June, 2016. A total of 13 species of zooplanktons (7 species of Rotifers, 3 species of Brachiopods, 2 species of Copepods and 1 species of Ostrachopod) belonging to 13 genera, 9 families, 5 orders and 4 classes were recorded during the study period. Rotifers were the dominant group among zooplankton community, with 7 species constituting 54 % of the total zooplankton population. High Shannon diversity index (0.87) was recorded during June month indicating high diversity and high Simpson's index (2.3) was also recorded in June month indicating high species dominance.
