Hypertension is a chronic disease, it also causes coronary heart disease, stroke and other vascular complication; it is one of the major factors for the cardiovascular mortality and morbidity, not only in the industrialized world but also in the developing countries. In the present study a quantitative non-experimental approach with convenient sampling technique was used to select 200 subjects. Tools were developed by the investigator reliability and validity of tools were established and tools were found reliable. Pilot study was done on 10% of total population and study was found feasible. The study revealed that out of 200 subjects 147(73.5%) were non hypertensive, 22(11.0%) subjects had stage-I hypertension while 21(10.5%) subjects had pre- hypertension and only 10(5.0%) subject had stage-II hypertension. The findings revealed that, there was significant association between hypertension with demographic variable like area of residence, duration of hypertension were strongly associated with hypertension, as the p- value .001 that is less than a (0.005). On the other hand, that age, marital status, type of family, education, religion, occupation, monthly income pattern did not had any impact on hypertension as p- value was more than a (0.005).
