Abstract: Amrit Pani (Nectar water) contains consortia of beneficial microorganisms, out of which two pigmented bacteria, B1 (yellow) and B2 (orange) were isolated. Colonies of these microbes were smooth, 1-3 mm in diameter and identified as Micrococcus luteus (B1) and Micrococcus varians (B2). Both the bacteria were aerobic in nature, could be grown successfully on medium containing pH 7- 8 at 30 oC temperature. Isolated bacteria exhibited UV resistance and high pectinase activity 2.23 and 2.66 IU/mL, respectively. These bacteria have shown antimicrobial activity against Colletotricum gloeosporioides and Fusarium solani and extracted pigments shown DPPH activity (free radical scavenging activity) 86.11 and 59.02 %, respectively. Based on above study, Amrit Pani can successfully be used for the management of soil born diseases and fermentation of organic wastes.
