The present study deals with the leaf extracts of Acalypha indica were tested against bacteria by disc diffusion method. Antimicrobial activity of isolated Stigmasterol from methanol extract of Acalypha indica was studied using solvent methanol against bacterial strains like Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis, Escherichia coli and salmonella typhi. The isolated Stigmasterol from methanol extract of Acalypha indica showed the maximum zone of inhibition against E. coli and, minimum inhibition of Bacillus substilis. The isolated Stigmasterol from methanol extract of Acalypha indica showed maximum inhibition against Escherichia coli, Bacillus subtilis and Staphylococcus aureus was resistant to Stigmasterol.
