The aim of this paper is to demonstrate the economic and health burden of Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) in the context of Bangalore during the period 2010-2013. A data set containing in excess of 1 million historic records corresponding to all-cause mortality was obtained from the central repository data register. After a data quality assessment, a dataset of n=183,893 was obtained. Spatial analysis was carried out to highlight the hotspots of CVD. Potential Years of Life Lost due to CVD and Present Value of Lifetime Earnings were computed. CVDs were responsible for 25% of the total of potential years of life lost. The potential value of lifetime earnings highlighted a loss in excess of 8 billion INR over the four years. CVD poses a tremendous challenge for socio-economic development, and there is an urgent need for a strategic action to promote CVD prevention and enable a sustainable development for the economy.
