The main objective of the present study was to determine the methanolic extract of Plumbago indica L. for antifungal activity. To determine the antifungal activity, agar disc diffusion method was used. The antifungal activity of the extracts was compared with standard drug Fluconazole (500 µg/disc). The methanol extract of Plumbago indica L. showed very good antifungal activity ranging from zone of inhibition (10.0-27.0) mm and Candida albicans was the most susceptible fungal strain of the methanolic extract of. Plumbago indica L .Due to these promising results, further in vivo studies over Plumbago indica L. must be conducted.
