The pharmaceutical sector is focused on development of new drugs and plant based drugs through investigation of leads from traditional system of medicine Ayurveda which is being practiced for thousands of years. Bauhinia variegata is a species of flowering plant in the family fabaceae. The major chemical constituents of the plant was found to be flavone, 5,7-dimethoxy-30, 40-methylenedioxy flavone and a new dihydrodibenzoxepin,5,6-dihydro-1,7-dihydroxy-3,4-dimethoxy-methyldibenzoxepin, flavono glycoside, triterpene saponin, phenanthraquinone, flavonoids.
