The stem bark of Ficus bengalensis is reported to have antimicrobial activity, we planned our work as to evaluate and compare antimicrobial activity of alcoholic extracts of stem bark of F. bengalensis by cup and plate method collected from three different geographical regions viz. Delhi, Gujarat and Uttaranchal. The activity of all the extracts at the dose level 1000 μg/ml, 500 μg/ml and 100 μg/ml were found to be quiet different and all the extracts showed that activity is varied as geography and environmental conditions are changed.

Key words: Ficus bengalensis, stem bark, antimicrobial activity.
