In recent years increasing demand of Sweta Musli in global market has created a huge gap between demand and supply of the drug. Local markets and suppliers have been the basic source for procurement of raw drug which are not trust worthy for genuine drug. The present study aims to workout botanical sources of Sweta Musli in crude drug markets and evaluate quality standards of market samples procured from different market of North India. The Chlorophytum sp. and Asparagus sp. are being frequently sold in crude drug market by the name of Sweta Musli.
