This study aims to observe the potential of indigenous bacteria from river Chambal flowing through Kota (Rajasthan) to degrade oil under in vitro conditions. Three strains namely Pseudomonas sp., Bacillus sp. and Staphylococcus sp. were isolated from Chambal waters through differential media screening which were then subjected to various biochemical tests for identification. Diesel was used as oil source in experiments. These strains were inoculated in sample water at different concentrations along with positive and negative controls for optimization of results. Method of gravimetric analysis was used for calculating degradation of oil. The inoculated samples were monitored for 30 days and high degradation of diesel was observed. Results revealed that these strains from river Chambal had better biodegradation potential for oil and can be used as potent hydrocarbon degraders.

Keywords: Biodegradation; Bioremediation; Diesel.
