Abstract 

About 160 samples were collected from kitchens and living rooms of rural and urban areas in Meerut (India) during June – August, 2010. The more bacterial growth (97.5%) in kitchens of rural areas as compared to that of the urban areas (80%) was reported. The higher positive bacterial growth (97.5%) was observed in living rooms of rural areas as compared to the living rooms of urban areas (92.5%). The present investigation clearly indicates that the rural kitchens are more contaminated (with the dominating 7 genera of pathogenic virulent bacteria i.e.  Proteus spp., Salmonella spp., Shigella spp., Aeromonas spp., Enterobacter spp., Citrobacter spp. and Klebsiella spp.) as compared to urban kitchens (3 genera such as Acinetobacter spp., Streptococcus spp. and Corynebacterium spp.). On the other hand, rural areas living rooms are more contaminated (with the major fractions of 4 genera such as Proteus spp., Salmonella spp., Shigella spp., Klebsiella spp.) in comparison to urban areas (3 genera: Acinetobacter spp., Klebsiella spp. and Proteus spp.). All in all, the kitchens were found more contaminated with pathogenic virulent bacteria as compared to living rooms.
