The suitability of worm for vermicomposting of press mud was worked with three different earthworm Eisenia fetida, Eudrilus eugeniae and Perionyx excavatus. The vermibed was set by blending pressmud and saw dust. The experiment set up was made with three monoculture and four polyculture with one control as experiment. The physic chemical characters were analysed and reported as increased level of total nitrogen, total phosphorus, and macronutrients. Electrical conductivity, C/N ratio, PH, Total organic matter was decreased. The oxygen update rate (OUR) dropped up to 1.95mg / g VS/day in monoculture and 1.78 mg / g VS / day for polyculture after 45 days. Both the culture has high quality stable compost free from pathogens and no specific differentiation
