Background: Due to lot of health risks involved obesity leads to highly public health concern.The health survey services are costly to decrease the life expectancy of an individual and the health issues associated with being obese.

By encouraging physical activity and improving lifestyle behaviors through workplace approaches that can reach a wide variety of populations, a growing body of evidence points towards reducing obesity. Most time spent by adults is at work, so occupational participation in the treatment and prevention of obesity is successful and desirable.

By introducing environmental improvements and multiple policy initiatives in workplaces to facilitate healthy decisions, habits can be modified.

Objectives:Study of various anthropometric indices to estimate obesity and to assess sensitivity of various anthropometric indices in estimating obesity across  various  age  groups.

Methods:The study will be carried out in AVBRH, Sawangi (Meghe) associated to DMIMS, Wardha, and it will be a  Cross sectional study.Subjects to be included in study will be explained regarding the study & proper consent will be obtained.The subjects selected will be enquired regarding history of DM ,HTN, CKD, HF, further they will be clinically examined for signs of heart failure, CVS examination and few investigations carried out serum creatinine, ECG, LFT and urine albumin.

Expected Results: This study aims at estimating obesity of various age groups  by using various anthropometric indices. As previous calculations of obesity have just focused on calculation of BMI which is a narrow approach. This study is being done to for better understanding and application of new and upcoming indices of obesity estimation in an Indian setup.

Conclusion:It will help in estimating risk of cardiovascular diseases using new external indices.
