Abstract: In the present study the antibacterial activity of methanol extracts of different parts of N. nimmoniana was tested against two bacteria. The similar work was carried out by John De Britto and Herin (2011a) in Datura metel. For that plant the leaves and flowers showed significant inhibitory effects. But in the present work, the seeds of the selected plant exhibited potential inhibition against the selected bacteria. John De Britto and Herin (2011b) reported the biocontrol of Xanthomonas campestris using the methanol extracts of different parts of Azadiracta indica. Hence to achieve the successful results in bio control of pathogens and screen the potential medicinal properties of N. nimmoniana, the present work was carried out. The investigation provides successful positive results.
