Abstract: The present study deals with comparative pharmacognostic parameters involving moisture content, ash values, extractive values and quantification of active component (Amarogentin) in whole plant of two different sites of Garhwal [Chakrata (CK) and Kaddukhal(KK)] in Uttarakhand of Swertia chirayita have been carried out. The quantification of amarogentin evaluated by HPLC, results indicate that Chakrata site has higher percentage of amarogentin than Kaddukhal site. Adulteration and substitution of medicinal plants can be prohibited by standardization and authentication.
