Present paper deals with the impact of auto-exhaust pollution on the phenological events of Withania somnifera and Amaranthus viridis growing along the road side. For study purpose three sites were identified i.e Highly Polluted Area (HPA), Medium Polluted Area (MPA) and Fresh Area (FA-Control), in city Ghaziabad which is an important industrial town of western U.P.. Various phenological events like-germination, vegetative growth, flowering and fruiting etc. were recorded. It was found  that different plants respond differently to the stress and life cycle was noticed short under stressed conditions of pollution.
