Dear Dr. Lemkul,
Thanks for the reply.
Yes I am referring to GROMOS forcefield. So how should i treat my partial charges.

Gromacs does no such thing! What you're referring to is the *Gromos* force
field, which is an entirely separate idea.
There are all-atom force fields for use with Gromacs - OPLS, Amber, and even
CHARMM, if you're adventurous :-) What you need to be concerned with is
whether or not these QM charges and methodology are compatible with your force
field of choice.
