This review summary presents experimental findings of some researchers who monitored Ganga River Water (Gangajal) in past, right from Gangotri to West Bengal. The attempt has been made to understand gradual degradation of the Gangajal and its today’s pollution level with respect to various purposes of its uses. A lot of monitoring for the assessment of Ganga Jal has been done time to time to study the physico chemical status of this holy river by various researchers. These studies reveal that all is not well and Ganga Jal quality is degrading day by day and the reason behind may be the nostalgic temper of the industries and common man continuing ill practices causing heavy pollution to Ganga. Though there are governmental laws to control river pollutions yet implementation is not up to the mark due to wavering approach that reduces the dominance, strictness and expediency of the laws in India. As far as consciousness to the environmental pollution is concerned it is not only expected from a common man but also from the top level.
