India; next only to China, is the second largest country in terms of population in the world. But the health status of the majority of the people is far from satisfactory as compared to China and other developed countries (16). When it comes to health status of the country, there is a large disparity between rural and urban elite class. According to a survey by the All-India Institute of Medical Sciences; seventy-six per cent of women in the capital, New Delhi, are suffering from abdominal obesity and it is a serious problem for country; because with obesity comes health related problems, from diabetes to heart failure. India is facing the dual challenge of obesity and undernourishment. Individuals who are overweight or obese are at the risk of developing cardiovascular, pulmonary, metabolic disease, osteoarthritis and certain types of cancer. On the other hand underweight individuals are malnourished and have a high risk of fluid-electrolyte imbalances, renal and reproductive disorders. Body composition analysis (BCA) therefore; is necessary to yield data about normal growth, maturity, and longer life.
