Fungi have the ability to degrade a diverse range of pollutants and are attracting wide-spread use in bioremediation. Successful application of decolorization of textile dyes to treat high concentration of industrial effluents will be a mile stone owing to advanced treatment processes. The decolorization of such harmful products is the major field of interest in research. In this investigation, the most common fungi, Aspergillus sp., is used for the decolorization of the dye. The fungus is inoculated  PDA and optimized PDA containing the dye. In modified PDA the dye decolorization of dye is visualized after 5 days. The enhanced decolorization by Aspergillus sp. was attributed to the highest percentage of decolorization of 75% for five days.
