Abstract The pollution of the environment with toxic heavy metals is spreading throughout the world along with industrial progress. Microbe related technologies may provide an alternative or addition to conventional method of metal removal or metal recovery. The present study deals with isolation, identification and characterization of heavy metal resistant bacteria from industrial effluent. a total58 isolates were screened for heavy metal resistant from industrial effluent. The GOZPRN isolate show multiple metal resistant and antibiotic resistances. On the basis of morphological, biochemical, partial 16S rRNA gene sequencing revealed that this isolates belongs to Citrobacter sp.. The isolate showed optimum growth at 30°C and pH 7.0. This isolate was found to be resistant to nickel (Ni), lead (Pb), zinc (Zn), Chromium (Cr). The minimal tolerance concentration (MTC) of this isolate against Cr, Ni, Pb, and Zn was 2.8 mM, 80 mM, 800 mM, and 500 mM respectively. It also exhibited resistance against tetracycline. This Citrobacter Sp. has potential to be useful for the bioremediation of heavy metals.
