Introduction: Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and the resultant morbidity and mortality due to them are ever increasing. Cardiovascular diseases are the major contributors to morbidity burden in South Asia. Deaths from (NCDs) are projected to rise from 4 million to 8 million a year in India. Aim: Assessment of risk factors of NCD in the age group of (25-60) in the Nachangaon village at Wardha district. Methodology: Observational community based cross-sectional study in Nachangaon village, Wardha district. Around 413 people were enrolled who were living in Nachangaon with the age group of (25-60). Results: The burden of NCD risk factors was high in our sample. Prevalence of behavioural and each of the biochemical risk factors increased with age, adjusting for other factors including sex and the place of residence. The odds ratios relating anthropometric variables to biochemical variables were modest, suggesting that anthropometric variables may not be useful surrogates for biochemical risk factors for population screening purposes. Total 413 interviewees were surveyed. Age range was 25-60 years. One-tenth of the interviewees had adequate dietary habits.
