Medicinal plants act as a great source of economic value all over the people. In present days more chemically drugs are used for the curing disease but it causes adverse effect on body and People are more aware about it. Large number of chemical compounds are found in the plants which is used for certain biological functions and these chemical compounds play a vital role in defending against the pathogenic attack from insects, fungi, viruses etc. Medicinal plants are considered as rich resources of ingredients which can be used in drug development pharmacopoeial, non- pharmacopoeial or synthetic drugs. A part from that, these plants play a critical role in the development of human cultures around the whole world. Moreover, some plants are considered as important source of nutrition and as a result of that they are recommended for their therapeutic values. Some method are used in characterization process are Proximate analysis of leaves of Azadirachta indica and Pongamia pinnata (Millettia pinnata), (Collection of samples Proximate analysis), Pyrolysis extract, Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy analysis, Determination of Zinc concentration and Thermo gravimetric analysis. The leaves of Azadirachta indica and Millettia pinnata were subjected to proximate analysis. The alcoholic extractives of Azadirachta indica and Millettia pinnata seeds results reveal how far they differ in their qualities and it gives a finger print out of the sample purity. Ashes gives us the idea of mineral matter contained in the plant which is responsible for pharmacological effect Higher total ash value shows that it had higher mineral content and higher value of acid insoluble ash shows that it has higher digestibility property when the plant is consumed.
