Naturally plant-derived drugs have an important place in both traditional and modern medicine. Jharkhand is rich in biodiversity of medicinal plants. The forest area covers about 40% of the total area of Jharkhand. About 32 tribal communities found in which Munda, Santhal, Oraon, Kharia, Gond, Kol, Kanwar, & Savar are dominating in different regions of Jharkhand. They are using medicinal plants by traditional knowledge. More than 160 species of plants having their medicinal value are used by such tribal communities which have lack of modern medical facilities. Still the knowledge is inadequate and needs further knowledge in full spectrum. For this reason a special effort to maintain the great diversity of plant species would undoubtedly help to improve human suffering in the long run. Hence, more effort should be given in cultivation and processing of such medicinal plants which are in the level of extinction. The extensive use of such medicinal plants is nowadays being adopted by almost all the developing and developed countries in order to enhance the immune system with zero side effects. The objective of the current study is to collect document information and review the value addition of such medicinal plants and their applications in therapeutic use for different diseases.
