Introduction: The World health statistics 2012 report highlight on the growing problem of the noncommunicable diseases burden due to urbanisation and change in the life styles. According to the WHO report, one in three adults worldwide, has hypertension a condition that causes around half of all deaths from stroke and heart disease.In this study, we are using the common modifiable risk factors like obesity and exercise status to evaluate risk of hypertension in later life. So the present study is planned to calculate the risk score for the development of hypertension. Material & Method: It was a cross sectional study. Study was conducted on about 521 individuals between the age group of 18-50 yrs in Pune urban population. Risk factors like obesity,physical activity .family history and depression were used to assess score Results: In our study total 521 participants were included out of which 27%,58% and 15 % have mild, moderate and high risk of developing hypertension respectively in future. Conclusion: The study concludes that majority of urban Pune population have moderate risk of hypertension. This highlights need of preventable measures like counselling sessions, regular follow up, life style modification in form of increased physical activity and healthy diet.
