The present study deals with the Zooplankton diversity of the Narsingtola pond in Cachar district of Assam. The survey was carried out four times in a month during morning hours from September 2014 to August 2015. During the study, 42 genera of Zooplankton were recorded from the site of which 13 genera belongs to Cladocera, 4 genera belongs to Copepoda and 25 genera belongs to Rotifera. Abundance status and population density of the Zooplankton groups were also recorded. Rotifera was the dominant group among Zooplankton community constituting 42% of the Zooplankton population. Higher population density of Zooplankton were recorded during winter season and lower during the summer season.

Keywords: Diversity, Narsingtola pond, Zooplankton, Rotifera.
