Large scale industrialization and urbanization has led to the increasing levels of air pollution that alters the environment and human health etc. The study was conducted to evaluate the chemical concentrations of major ions (F-, Cl-, NO3-, SO42- etc.) in dust samples collected from Government Schools in rural areas of Ranbir Singh Pura of Jammu region by using Ion exchange chromatography. Chemical characterization of indoor settled dust is important from the health point of view. The result shows that indoor dust is an important carrier of toxic substances; therefore proper care must be taken to reduce the indoor dust in the school environments.
