Epidemiological evaluation of burn cases is poor in India. Past data can help us to move into future of prevention & treatment of burns cases. India is poor country where we still have unsafe and obsolete uses of fire as source of light & cooking. These greatly increase the number of burns in country but unfortunately we do not have a registration center where whole data can be collected and definite conclusions can be made. This presentation is a humble attempt for the same. We hope more of such studies will be done and we will be able to get some direction for prevention and treatment of burns.
