Water is essential for the existence of all forms of life for human consumption, agriculture and industrial. This is the reason why the man has moved and settled only in areas of rich water resources. As the population has started growing and unregulated usage of surface water resources has been initiated in multiple fronts the available water is not able to cope up to human needs. So, the man has aggressively and competitively started mining the ground water reservoirs all over the world using all the possible and available modern technologies. Water resources of the world in general and in India are under heavy stress due to increased demand and limitation of available quantity. Since urbanization, the demand for water is increasing day by day and the sources of fresh water are depleting rapidly. Groundwater is not only an important component of the hydrological cycle but also the most important source of water for drinking, domestic, industrial and agricultural uses. In a densely populated country like India, ground water resource is of extreme importance. Gujarat Government announced that the Gandhinagar district is under the heavy stress of water availability. all four talukas are over exploited due to the excessive withdrawal of groundwater. So, it’s necessary to takes steps against this problem in these study artificial groundwater recharge process is applied on Gandhinagar district. Artificial groundwater recharge is a process by which the groundwater reservoir is reduced at a rate exceeding the augmentation rate under natural conditions of replenishment. The work aims to understand the ground water scenario from the geological point of view as geology of the area concerned is the main control of ground water recharge, and potentiality. This study aims that recharging the groundwater of and tries to overcome the scarcity of water in Gandhinagar district.
