A study of 150 defaulters and equal number of randomly picked up non-defaulters was carried out. It has revealed a very strong association of poor socio-economic status, illiteracy and joint family system with irregularity in drug intake in tuberculosis. Commonest reasons mentioned for default were domestic problems followed by financial difficulties and carelessness etc. A need for sustained education of the patients in drug intake is emphasized.
