Ptercarpus santalinus is an important endemic medicinal plant with high medicinal values that interfere with DNA extraction procedures and qualitative, quantitative agaros gel electrophoresis. An effective and low-cost protocol for isolating genomic DNA from the roots of Pterocarpus santilinus and Pimpinella tirupatiensis was described in this paper. It involved a modified CTAB method with distilled water pretreating samples.  The A260/A280 absorbance ratio of extracted DNA was found to be free from polysaccharide, poly-phenols and tannins contaminants ranged from 2.2 to 2.8 within the high level of purity.
