The work is undertaken to evaluate the preliminary phyto-chemicals, anti-microbial activity of root, stem, leaf, flower and fruit extracts. The highest anti-fungal activity was observed against M. phaseolina by aqueous extract of flower. The highest anti-bacterial activity was observed against S. typhi by methanol extract of leaf. This medicinal plant was the source of the secondary metabolites i.e., alkaloid, flavonoids, saponin etc. The outcomes of the present study specified the plant possess various potentially active secondary metabolites which help for the developing pharmaceuticals, especially antimicrobial drugs. It is the first-ever information about this plant and it will help with pharmacological studies of Telosma pallida L.

Keywords: Medicinal plant, Telosma pallida, Phyto-chemical, Anti-fungal, Anti-bacterial
