Water is basic to individuals and the biggest accessible wellspring of crisp water lies underground. Expanded requests for water have animated investigation of underground water assets. Water assets get contaminated because of fast industrialization, headway in agrarian methods, expanding populace and other unfavourable effects of situations. Every one of these elements may bring about changing the hydrological cycle. The urban natural quality dependably relies upon the utilization of land. The nature of the earth is controlled by concentrate the land utilize highlights and their effects are investigated. In the present investigation, an endeavour is had to assess the effect of land use/land cover on groundwater nature of Zone VII under the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) zone. Different topical maps are set up from the toposheet on 1:50000 scale utilizing ArcGIS Software. The land-use/landcover guide of the investigation region is set up from the straightly improved melded information of IRS-1D PAN and LISS-III satellite symbolism by utilizing Visual Interpretation Techniques. Groundwater tests were haphazardly gathered at pre-decided inspecting areas dependent on satellite symbolism of the investigation zone. Every one of the examples was broken down for different physical-synthetic parameters embracing standard conventions for the age of trait information. In view of the outcomes got maps demonstrating spatial circulation of chose water quality parameters is set up for the examination region. The varieties in the groupings of water quality parameters showed high convergences of Alkalinity, TDS, Fluoride, Hardness, Nitrates are surpassed as far as possible while different parameters like Sodium, Sulfate and Chloride were inside as far as possible aside from in a couple of zones like Golnaka, Imlibun, Kamalanagar and so forth., which might be ascribed to leakage of residential squanders through open nallahs and modern squanders. The water quality file (WQI) in the examination region is computed to decide the appropriateness of groundwater for drinking reason. Diverse appraisals of water quality have been seen which showed falling apart nature of groundwater. Control and therapeutic measures for the change of groundwater quality in the examination zone are proposed.
