The present study deals with the quality control of the Ayurvedic formulation Darvyadi Kvatha Ghana Vati (Tablet) following quality control procedures for the finished product. The results of physico-chemical parameters viz. loss on drying (9.7 %), average weight (5.0 %), friability (0.15 %) and disintegration time (85 min) were found. Microbiological limit test and heavy metals Pb, Cd, As, Hg were also found within the limits set by Ayurvedic Pharmacopeia of India (API). The obtained values can be adapted to lay down new pharmacopoeial standards with batch to batch consistency. The phytochemical constituents found in the raw material used for the preparation of Darvyadi Kvatha Ghana Vati (Tablet) facilitate the desirable therapeutic efficacy of the medicinal formulations a whole in elements and also could help in knowing the underlying mechanism of pharmacological action.
