The present study was conducted to study suitability of ground water for irrigation purposes. The water samples for the physico-chemical analysis were collected from the open well of the 95 locations from Upper Berach river basin to analyzed for TDS, pH, EC, Ca, Mg, Na, K, Cl, SO4 , CO3 , HCO3 and Soluble sodium percentage (SSP). Water quality index has been (WQI) calculated to evaluated the water quality of the river basin. The categorization of the ground water for irrigation was studies with the help of criteria given by Wilcox 1955. The mean concentration values for TDS, pH, EC Ca, Mg, Na, K, Cl, SO4 , CO3 , HCO3 are observed 1397.99 mg/l, 7.9, 2.35, 3.73 mg/l, 7.62 mg/l, 12.63 mg/l, 0.70 mg/l, 14.41v, 3.56 mg/l, 0.15 mg/l and 6.01 mg/l respectively. ARC/GIS-10.1 software was utilized to show the spatil variation of WQI.
