The present paper deals with the study of effect of vehicular pollution on selected plant from different sites of Aurangabad city. During the present study the different sites from Aurangabad city were selected to count the total number of vehicle passes in unit time and different commonly occurring plants were selected (i.e. six plants form each side) from selected sampling sites. To study the effect of vehicular emissions on selected plants different characteristics of plants viz. dust deposition, chlorophyll content and moisture content were studied. The results obtained during the present investigation reveals that, the total number of vehicles passed in unit time are higher at Kranti Chowk, Nagar Naka and Railway station area as compare to University campus. The chlorophyll content in Ashoka and Bogunvelia plant are found low at Kranti chowk and Nagar Naka as compare to Eucalyptus, Neem and Babul. Whereas, similar results were recorded in case of moisture content. However the dust fall concentration values on all selected plants were high at selected sampling sites.
