Abstract: Quality assurance of herbal medicine is an important factor and basic requirement for herbal drug industry and other drug development organization. <i style="">Hinguvacādi Cūrna</i> is one of the ancient, most commonly used <i style="">Ayurvedic</i> formulations. The herbomineral drug is made in combination of 20 plant ingredients and 4 mineral ingredients. The formulation is prescribed for the treatment of <i style="">ādhmāna</i> (flatulence with gargling sound), <i style="">śūla</i> (pain), <i style="">pārśvaśūla</i> (intercostals neuralgia and pleurodynia), and <i style="">pāndu</i> (anaemia). Due to lack of quality standards, there are batch-to-batch variations. In order to develop standards for the <i style="">Cūrna</i>, the study was undertaken. The ingredients were procured locally, identified; <i style="">Cūrna</i> was prepared in laboratory scale and analyzed. Two other samples of <i style="">Cūrna</i> were procured from different <i style="">Ayurvedic</i> drug manufacturers. These samples were subjected to physico-chemical analysis, TLC and HPTLC finger printing. The data evolved can be adopted for laying down the pharmacopoeial standards for <i style="">Hinguvacādi Cūrna</i>.
