In the present work we have studied degradation of diesel oil in oil-polluted soil. Oil-polluted soil culturing showed presence of variety of microorganisms. Hydrocarbon degrading potential of these microbes was confirmed and was identified. Acinetobacter sp, Bacillus sp., Micrococci sp., Pseudomonas sp. Streptomyces sp., and fungi Aspergillus sp, Trichoderma sp, Penicillin sp.were found part of hydrocarbon degrading microbial consortium. Analysis of extracted diesel oil was done using FTIR, HPLC, 1H NMR and GCMS techniques. It confirmed biodegradation of diesel oil confirming naphthalene and it's derivatives as major pollutants which are able to dissolve in water. This further confirmed by hydrocarbon dominated water table.
