Invasive alien plant species are widely vulnerable to invasion and recognized as stresses altering the ecosystem properties and competing with native flora of pond. During the investigation a total of 30 invasive alien species belonging to 26 genera under 17 families were recorded. Asteraceae was the most dominant family with 5 species and about 79% of these invasive alien species were introduced from Tropical America. Among invasive alien species, major potential threat in the near future is by Argemone maxicana and Parthenium histophorus. It was observed that 18 plant species were being used by local inhabitant for medicinal purposes. In order to resist the spread, a better planning is needed for early detection of control, report infestation of spread of new and naturalized invasive alien species to be monitored.
