84 ground water samples collected from different areas of Karera Block (Shivpuri M.P.) were analysed for fluoride The maximum concentration of fluoride has been observed as 4.23 mg/L in the sample from Dumduma Key words: Fluoride content, ground water, Karera Block, M.P. Fluoride elements was carried out by visible-UV spectrophotometer 128. Fluoride-Spadns spectrophotometric method RESULTS AND DISCUSSION The maximum permissible limit of fluoride in drinking water has been fixed as 1.5 mg/L by

In M.P. (India) the main source of fluoride in ground water is fluorapatite in areas covered by granite and granitic geneisses.
