Dashmoolais one of the most important groups explained in Mishrakagana. One of which,
Shalaparni is a potent drug used single as well as in various formulations mentioned in
classics. Adulteration in Dashmoolaplants is a very big issue now days and this is because of
the lack of availability of the original drugs. In this study market samples of Shalaparni
(Desmodium gangeticum DC.) collected from the different part of India; compared with the
standard Shalaparni authenticated sample which was collected from the natural source; by
using physicochemical parameter and near infrared spectroscopy. Results were statistically
processed by PCA. The results show that there is no similarity found outbetween the standard
drug and market samples of Shalaparni which were collected from different regions of India.
The market samples were observed for different adulterated material having poor quality
