Over the Indian continent, population is growing day by day and it is expected that soon India will become one of the world's most populated countries. With the growing population, industrialization and urbanization, the aerosol loading in India is increasing that has significant impact on the weather/climatic conditions. The present paper discusses the analysis of the temporal and spatial variations of aerosol and aerosol forcing for major populated and industrial cities in India.
