Abstract: Indian medicine is known as the richest, the first and the foremost among other branches of medical knowledge that is available elsewhere on the globe.

To elevate the medicinal properties, Different parts of Terminalia pallida were collected from different localities of Veligonda hill range, Eastern Ghats, Nellore Dt, Andhra Pradesh, India. The methanolic extracts of various parts of the plants were qualitatively screened for phytochemicals by using standard procedures which revealed the presence of various important bioactive chemical entities. Antibacterial activity of the methanolic extracts of stem bark and fruit were evaluated against Bacillus subtilis, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Proteus vulgaris, Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The methanolic extracts of these plant parts have exhibited significant broad spectrum antibacterial activities.
