India is a country known for ancient scripts,the number system,invetion of zero and Vedas. Medicines in india are used by about 60 per cent of the world's population. These are not only used for primary health care not just in rural areas in developing countries, but also in developed countries as well where modern medicines are predominantly used. While the traditional medicines are derived from medicinal plants, minerals, and organic matter, the herbal drugs are prepared from medicinal plants only. As other herbal systems, greater parts of its medicaments are based on indigenous herbals. In the recent years, the interest in medicinal plants has increased in a great deal. The interest of the pharmaceutical industry in plant derived products could therefore be strengthened by improving the degree of protection available for unpatented products.
