|Abstract||Ni (II) has been designated as a priority pollutant by the US Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) due to its ability to cause mutations and cancer in humans. The risk associated with soil and groundwater contamination of nickel waste generated by many industries is high, and therefore Ni (II) remediation is of critical importance. It is discharged into the environment through the disposal of wastes from industries like Electroplating industry, metallurgical and metal finishing, textiles and ceramics, pigment and wood preservatives, photographic sensitizer manufacturing, etc. In the environment nickel occurs in divalent and tetravalent forms. Comparative to tetravalent, divalent nickel is more hazardous to the environment. Electroplating industry which commonly use nickel metal for plating process, discharges the effluents into the environment containing Nickel in excess of the maximum permissible limits. According to W .H.O. standards the permissible limits for nickel in effluent is 3mg/l and in drinking water is 0.02 mg/l. Staphylococcus sp. has polyphosphate in its cell, which is responsible for sequestering nickel. Using chemical and biological methods conjointly can decrease the cost of remediating contaminated sites. Microbial reduction of Ni(II), an important aspect of biological remediation, requires the knowledge of microorganisms capable of reducing Ni(II) and the mechanisms involved in the reduction processes. Staphylococcus sp. has polyphosphate in its cell, which is responsible for sequestering nickel. The present study is an attempt to evaluate the bio-removal of nickel from wastewater, which is collected and characterized from an electroplating industry, Coimbatore, Tamilnadu, RSP ,Rourkela. Staphylococcus cultured in the lab is used for the removal of nickel. The overall objective of this study was to investigate the effect of various parameters like pH, inoculum volume, sugar amount, initial nickel concentration on nickel reduction by indigenous soil isolated bacteria isolated from soil contaminated sites.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDL India) pilot project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDL India is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading Indian languages. It is being arranged to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular form of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examination, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. The pilot project is devising a framework that is being scaled up with respect to content volume and diversity to serve all levels and disciplines of learners. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDL India is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with respective organization from where the contents are sourced and NDL India has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDL India portal up and running smoothly. However, NDL India takes no responsibility for, and will not be liable for, the portal being unavailable due to technical issues or otherwise.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDL India) pilot project.
