I have Brinjal Plants.  On the backside of the leaves I find whitish formation which spreads to the stem also.  What is the reason for this?  Is it an infection?  What is the remedy.

In the brinjal plants in the front side there is some formation of black substance.  This black substance appear more on the green payaru creeper both on the payaru and the stems.  Similar is the problem with Avaraikai plant.  What should be done.

The front portion of leaves in the Beans Plant is full of white spots.  

The leaves of some brinjal plants become white in the upper portion.  

Could you suggest some remedy for these type of infections.  I regularly spray Neem Spray and also spray Microstat of the Vithal Mallaya Foundation.  

I do not know how to attach photographs, otherwise I would have sent the leaves infected as above.

It should be fungus or aphids which also increases the traffic of ants to your infected pot.

I suspect the black ones are aphids..You can use neem oil or soap water for 2-3 days and see if it goes away. White thing could be mealy bugs for which you can use neem oil. use tooth brush and remove the mealy bugs by hand if possible

As informed the leaves get lot of perforation and many leaves become with lots of holes.  Do I remove the leaves or leave it like that.  I am spraying regularly neem oil /butter milk (as suggested in one of the postings) and brush the mealy bugs (white in colour on the stems and backside of leaves).

You can remove the leaves if there are not a lot of leaves affected.
