Abstract: In the present study analysed Groundwater quality of Hard rock terrain in Bengaluru North, Karnataka, India. For the present study areas affected by industrialization were selected to measure the quality of Groundwater for determining its fitness for domestic use. Bore well samples from each part of the study area were analysed for Physio – chemical variations and quality of groundwater. Comparison of Physio – chemical analysis results with Indian Standard drinking water limits shows that all groundwater samples except few are fit for drinking and irrigation purposes. The average value of pH of five villages is 7.5-8.0 which is within desired limit. However, the pH value is increasing so it may be unfit for the future use. About 50% of Water samples containing chloride in excess of 250mg/l are considered undesirable for drinking purposes which may lead to cardiovascular diseases. The concentration of sulphate for each sample of villages is within desirable limit. Also it is found that 25% of samples containing total hardness more than 300 mg/l which is undesirable. In future there may be threat of decrease in groundwater quality. Public awareness must be created among the citizens about the importance of lakes/tanks and give awareness about importance of quality of Groundwater and surface water.
