Abstract: Radon monitoring has become a global phenomenon due to its health hazard. More than 55 % radiation dose delivered to the human kind on the globe from all natural sources is due to radon alone. Radon measurements have been carried out in groundwater in Gurdaspur and Bathinda districts of Punjab, India. Radon concentration values in potable water show a wide variation depending on its source and location. Generally, radon concentration values in hand-pump drawn groundwater have been found to be higher than the values determined for water supplied from other sources. Mineral water has the minimum radon concentration compared with groundwater sources. No correlation is found between radon concentration and uranium content of groundwater in Bathinda district.
