The paper reveals utilization of 55 species of flowering plants belonging to 34 genera comprising of 34 families and one fern species. Of these, 32 families are of dicotyledons, 2 of monocotyledons and 1 of pteridophytes. Brief information about the plant parts used, botanical and local names, families and the mode of preparation of drugs and method of applications have been given. As the traditional herbal remedies are based on ancestral knowledge and empiric experiences, this type of ethno-medicinal survey appeared to be useful for the research on medicinal plants for the betterment of mankind.
