Since times past medicinal plants have played an important role in healing and prevention of diseases, and for replicating the medications given it is required to have authentic reference raw plant drug material. About 70% of the Homeopathic drugs are derived from medicinal plants sources and for maintaining the quality of the drug, the source material is collected either from wild occurrence or is cultivated in the gardens with expert supervision. For maintaining authentic plant source material in fresh and live condition, the Council has established a medicinal plants research garden and a Survey of Medicinal Plants and Cultivation Unit, which collects raw drug plant material from areas surveyed from all over India. This research unit has now been renamed as “Centre of Medicinal Plants Research in Homoeopathy” in Tamil Nadu at Indira Nagar, Emerald Post, Nilgiri District (T. N.), taking into account the manifold aspects of research work on medicinal plants being carried out here . This research centre in addition to conducting survey for the collection of the medicinal plants used in Homoeopathy in its wild state also cultivates both exotic and indigenous plant material for supply as and when required for drug standardization or drug preparation, both for in-house research and also for Homoeopathic drug manufacturers the surplus raw drug plant material in ‘not for profit’ basis. In addition the laboratory for carrying out drug standardization research studies is also hoped to be established here in future, bringing all aspects of research in medicinal plants under one umbrella. The Centre has conducted 170 surveys and supplied 465 raw drugs to Units for carrying out standardisation studies till August 2016.
