The ethanolic extract and its chloroform soluble and chloroform insoluble fractions of the roots of Baliospermum montanum  were investigated in albino rats to evaluate the analgesic activity. Tailo - flick animal model was employed to test analgesic activity and compaired with a standard drug, Diclofenac sodium. The results indicate that the ethanolic extract and its chloroform soluble fraction are significantly effective (p<0.05) with respect to standard. The activity was found to be dose dependant. Results of present study justify the folklore use of B.montanum  as analgesic drug.
