Abstract: Water is one in all the foremost indispensable renewable assets and is that the elixir of life. In this present world population is increasing tremendously. Rate of technological development in industry and agriculture is also high. The mentioned top of the reason has enlarged the demand for water which is going to be a major crisis in next to the upcoming future. Quality of groundwater was assessed by collecting sixty-six sampling spots in January 2017(Post monsoon) and May 2017(pre monsoon) Irrigation water quality interpretation was done by using Sodium Adsorption Ratio (SAR), USSL classification, Doneen’s classification and Wilcox’s classification. The influence of anions and cations was done by Piper’s trilinear diagram. Groundwater quality for irrigation purpose during premonsoon season is in doubtful category in almost all parts of the study area.
