India has a long history of traditional plant usage for medicinal purposes and hence preserves the infinite reservoir of ethnomedicinal knowledge of plants. The ethnomedicinal knowledge is the most affordable and easily accessible source of treatment of various ailments. This knowledge is lying scattered in bits and segments in an unorganised form. Sporadic work has been done to retrieve, compile and utilize the traditional knowledge. Therefore, mega components in Indian economy which is based and dependent on traditional knowledge is going unacknowledged. An effort has been done on the part of authors to devise a strategy whereby this eloping knowledge can be fished out from rural India and finally put to purposeful usage after scientific screening. A novel methodology was framed which included format design, information collection from rural area after field survey.
