Abstract: In the present era of globalization and intellectual property rights, India’s folk knowledge of traditional remedies needs to be documented systematically. Sahyadris of Maharashtra have a diverse flora and fauna, and harbor numerous species of medicinal importance. Katkaris are one of the primitive tribes of India, residing in Thane and Raigad districts of western Maharashtra. Their remote locality, poverty and lack of touch with modern civilizations make them confined to the hilly areas around. In present paper an attempt has been made to document traditional remedies of Katkaris from Maharashtra with respect to 35 diseases, are discussed with respect to their cures from combination products of 33 plants and 7 animals
