Healthy lifestyle and low probability of an attack of non-communicable diseases NCDs are inextricably linked. Addressing the risk factors can become an effective and inexpensive option to combat the unfinished agenda of NCDs. But, subjective action to prevent or mitigate a disease depends on perceived risk. So the broad objective of this study was to assess the opinion of urban patients regarding NCDs, to justify the importance of lifestyle modification and implement it by using health promotion techniques such as awareness programs to sensitise people. Five hundred out-patients of ten private super specialty hospitals of Kolkata, India were chosen as respondents who were interviewed with the help of a structured questionnaire. This study has emanated that perceived importance of information pertaining to NCDs and healthy lifestyle need to be communicated to the victims in a customised way to avoid the emergence and to arrest the progress and intensity of NCDs besides the use of medicinal support.
