Airborne micro fungal propgules are found in large numbers in indoor and outdoor environments and are widely distributed in nature. Some of them have the potentiality to cause allergies, spoilage of foods and many other adverse health effects. Present investigation focuses on aeromycobial survey of government college building of Sakti, distt. Janjgir Champa (C.G.). It is a study carried out between July 2015 and December 2015. Environmental factors play an important role in the distribution of the fungal spores. Fungi are diverse groups of organisms and have been found in large amount in the environment. Air almost always contains spores, but the number and type of spores depend on the time of the day, weather, season and geographical location. Aeromycoflora simply refers to the airborne fungal contributors of the environment. A large number of airborne mycofungal propaguls are found in indoor environment which are generally widely distributed in nature. The aim of this study is to determine the aeromicoflora, their identification, concentration and diversity in indoor environment to understand the cumulative aeromycoflora composition in the college environment. During the present investigation period of growth in population of fungal spores is observed. In the specified period of the six months growth of Aspergillus niger, Rhizopus, Cladosporium Fusarium and Oxysporum was observed in high percentage in indoor environment.
