Abstract:

A wide range of microorganisms present in industrial effluent, exposed to different heavy metals, develop tolerance to such metal. Adaptation to the adverse environmental condition make them resistant to different antibiotics and various characters exhibited by them need to be explored. Twenty numbers of bacteria isolated from the effluent of a steel plant showed tolerance to heavy metals like Ni, Cr, Cd, Pb, and Hg and resistance to different antibiotics. Through morphological and biochemical characterization, the isolates were identified as species of Staphylococcus, Psuedomonas, Burkholderia, Sphingomonas, Bacillus, Paenibacillus, Lysinibacillus and Enterococcus. All the isolates were tried for plant growth promoting traits. Of the twenty isolates R-57 and R-58 showed positive for IAA production, siderophore production, PO4 solubilization, HCN production and ammonia production.
