Ludhiana city of Punjab is famous for its dyeing and printing of textile fabric. Increased usage of chemical-based dyestuff was release into the natural surface water body (Buddha Nallah) which destroys the environment and proved to be a great ecological hazard. The workers in these industries have no control over the pace and space of exposure. Both untreated, as well as treated effluents from these industries are released into surface waters through the drainage systems. But many dyes proved to be carcinogenic to the people of Ludhiana city. A complete evaluation safety of these dyes required assessment of the mutagenicity of these dyes. Five textile dyes from Ludhiana city were collected from textile industries in the periphery of Buddha Nallah and tested for their mutagenicity by using Ames test with the strain Salmonella Typhimurium TA 100
