Standardization of Ayurvedic formulations is essential in order to assess the quality, purity, safety and efficacy of drugs based on the amounts of their active principles. The present research work is an attempt to standardize “Srngyadi Churna” an ayurvedic polyherbal formulation used in the treatment of cough, asthma and fever. The formulation was prepared in institute pharmacy as per Ayurvedic formulary of India, Part- I guide lines and attempts to evaluate the organoleptic characters, phamacognostic study and physicochemical parameters like pH, Loss on drying at 105°C, Water soluble extract, Alcohol soluble extract, Total Ash, Acid insoluble ash and TLC. The study revealed specific identities for crude drug taken which will be useful in identification and control to adulterations of the drugs.
