This study aimed that assessing the water quality index of groundwater in nine tribal blocks of Madhya Pradesh.  It has been determined by collecting 77 groundwater samples and subjecting the samples to a physicochemical analysis. For calculating the water quality index, the following 18 quality parameters have been considered: pH, EC, carbonate, bicarbonate, calcium, magnesium, chloride, sodium, potassium, phosphorus, nitrate, chromium, nickel, cadmium, lead, copper, iron and zinc. The result shows the water quality index of these 77 samples obtained from 22.41 to 200.59. The analysis reveals that the groundwater of the area needs some degree of treatment before consumption, and it also needs to protect from the pollutions.

Key words: Groundwater, Water quality parameters, Water quality index.
