The impending world is reliant on traditional medicine, and its recognition escalating at present as essential. In regulating the therapeutic efficacy of herbal drugs, standardization and quality control are the key factors. Organoleptic characters are not much consistent in establishing the standards of herbal drugs, for which the instrumental analysis of the drugs provide more accurate picture regarding the qualitative and quantitative aspects of bioactive molecules, which are held liable for therapeutic action and is widely accepted in quality assessment of herbal drugs. The present study was taken to scientifically evaluate the sample by various parameters such as macroscopy, microscopy, powder study and physico-chemical analysis such as loss on drying, extractive values i.e., water-soluble matter, ethanol soluble matter, Hexane soluble matter, percentage of ash values i.e., Total ash and acid insoluble ash, pH of 1% & 10% aqueous solution and HPTLC Fingerprinting analysis. This will be helpful for botanical identification and standardization of Kasondi leaves in crude form.
