The study aims to assess the pollution tolerance level of the farmers in the Noyyal river basin of Tamil Nadu. Pollution tolerance level is a cognitive behaviour, denotes the extent to which the farmers express their adjustability with regard to different pollution causing factors. The study was conducted in Tiruppur and Erode districts of Tamil Nadu. From each district one block was selected. Six revenue villages at the rate of three from each block were selected. The respondents were categorized into affected and unaffected farmers based on their proximity to Noyyal river as well as well water quality parameters. A sample of 90 farmers from each category (affected and not affected) was considered for the study. Totally 180 farmers were selected. The responses were obtained on a three point continuum and chi-square value was worked out to determine the significance of difference between the perception by the respondents of both the areas with respect to each of the statement. In both areas, cent per cent of the respondents perceived positively ‘agreed’ the following statements such as ‘industries leading to water pollution should not be permitted in the village locality’ (S-4), ‘industries that have the technology for treating waste water alone should be encouraged’ (S-5),‘industries depleting ground water should be discouraged’ (S-8), ‘conversion of agricultural lands for industrial purpose should be avoided’ (S-9), ‘industries causing air pollution should be avoided in the village locality’ (S-14) ‘industries disposing more of solid wastes should not be established in the village locality’ (S-15).
