Hypertension has arisen as a significant general medical issue around the world. Hypertension is the main danger factor for chronic disease trouble in India. Survey studies from different parts of India have announced a high predominance of hypertension. Former studies have suggested that metropolitan- rural intermingling of hypertension in India is because of the quick urbanization of country populaces with ensuing changes in lifestyles (inactivity, high dietary salt, sugar, and excess fat in diet regimen) and an expansion in overweight and stoutness. Here, we documented a survey report on the prevalence of hypertension. We used gender and pre-existing body ailment as an indicator for this observational study. The study was carried out for 1 month (1st to 31st of January 2021) with a sample size of n= 450. Data were collected by reviewing the patient’s medical records. Depending on gender and co-morbidity, patients were categorized into two groups. We found a greater prevalence of hypertension in men (67%) than women (33%). We recorded an increasing trend in the prevalence of hypertension associated with preexisting disease in males (83%) and females (73%). Good quality long-term studies will help to understand hypertension in all aspects; furthermore, it would help in its avoidance, screening, and control. Lastly, we would state that effective prevention and management programs should be broadly executed in India, particularly in developing urban cities.
