The present investigation was carried out for the evaluation of antibacterial and antioxidant activities of Cordia dichotoma leaves, stem, fruit peel and fruit pulp extracts. Among them fruit pulp extract was found to have significant antibacterial and antioxidant properties. Antibacterial activity was more effective against gram negative organisms than aganist gram positive organisms. The current studies also revealed that methycilin resistant Staphylococcus aureus, was susceptible to fruit pulp extracts. Fruit pulp exhibited good antioxidant activities. Antioxidant activities of the extracts were correlated with its scavenging property of free radicals.
