Abstract: There have been a lot of practical applications of phytoremediation in the last ten years, involving organic, inorganic, heavy metal, and radionuclide remediation. India would find this to be an excellent alternative to conventional remediation methods as it is a sustainable and inexpensive process. The huge retention of industrial waste in soil resulted in soil pollution which is more hazardous due to the long-term persistence of contaminants. A major source of hazardous waste products in Bhopal city is the industrial region. Near residential areas, industries produce pollution that can be very harmful to human health. The objective of this research was to determine which heavy metal accumulators are capable of absorption and translocation of heavy metals. In the Govindpura sampling sites, Cr and Ni concentrations were higher, while Cd concentrations were lower. Phytoremediation was conducted by comparing the heavy metal accumulation of Datura inoxia, Calotropis procera, Ricinus commmunis, and Polygonum in vitro cultures.
