Vineet Shah and Shweta Pandey
A detailed and systematic study for identification, cataloguing and documentation of plants, which may provide a meaningful way for the promotion of the traditional knowledge of the herbal medicinal plants. In addition to the proper utilization of technological advances, a logical interpretation of the modified language of traditional medicine also becomes a necessity in order to further promote research in this field. There is a paucity of information on medicinal plants and their pharmacological molecules of Vidhyan region. The pharmaceutical industry can extract the active ingredients before being used in the manufacturing of drugs hence; there is possibility of discovering new functional molecule through pre-identified medicinal plants of Vindhyan region for the evolution of novel drugs.
