Acidic dye is a dye which is salt of a sulphuric, carboxylic or phenolic organic acid .It is used on wool, other animal fibers and some manufactured fibers. These dyes when disposed into the environment causes pollution and serious irreversible damage to the ecosystem. In the present study various sample is collected from effluent of industry in the Vapi region. Four isolates SP1, SP2, SP3 and SP4 found to be effective decolorizer of Acid Maroon V dye. Among these isolate, SP4 shows maximum decolorization.

Keywords: Acid Maroon V dye, Microorganisms, Decolorization, Medium optimization.
