ABSTRACT In the present study, Doneen’s (1964) Permeability Index method has been used for classifying the groundwater quality in three different classes to understand its irrigation suitability at Dhanbad. For this purpose groundwater quality data were collected from 24 different hand pumps of the Dhanbad town area and analysed and analysed them for their electrical conductivity (EC), Na+, Ca2+ and Mg2+ concentrations to acquire the required information.
