Abstract: Antibiotics played a key role in development of the modern, pharmaceutical industry. Using the commercial antimicrobial drugs soon came up with their limitations, side effects thus making the medical practitioners to think about alternative medical branch. Since ancient times, herbs and their essential oils have been known for their varying degrees of antimicrobial activity. Present study focuses on potential medicinal properties of Helicteresisora, which are used by the people as a folk remedy for various health problems .Fruits of this plant is extracted in four solvents. Antibacterial sensitivity was conducted by well plate method using Sterile Mueller Hinton agar. Antimicrobial activity is measured against Microbial Strains of E. coli, S. aureus, P. aeruginosa, klebsiella pneumonia. Zone of inhibition were observed which are measured in mm. Antibacterial capability pattern of all four strains in different solvent extracts were studied.
