Due to its wide range of significance its market value is rich in India and also in the world. High exploitation and less cultivation will create an ecological problem for their existence in nature, leading to push it towards endangered category. Day by day the rate of demand of Curcuma longa Linn is increasing in market as well as pharmaceutics. Since the Curcuma longa Linn is being endangered its continuous cultivation in rural area and river belts of Bilaspur (C.G.) will be a better approach towards its conservation and increasing benefits to local villagers.
