West Bengal relies heavily on ground water for both agricultural activities and drinking purposes. Despite the fact that the state has decent ground water potential, recent unrestricted ground water use has led to overharvesting in certain areas. Because of this overconsumption, the suitability of groundwater is deteriorating due to the contamination from nearby aquifer rocks with natural pollutants such as arsenic, fluoride, and nitrate, among others. The purpose of this systematic overview is to gain a better understanding of the state's overall groundwater resources, with a focus on abundance, contamination, source of information, and remedial actions in the current scenario, using a range of scientific reports, academic papers, and case analysis. To achieve the water security goal in West Bengal, particularly in villages and developing areas, the identification of clean and pure and ecologically sustainable water resources is critical, and this retrospective study will assist in that endeavour.
