A self-structured schedule was used to collect the general information, functional status was measured by using Katz Index of Independence in Activities of Daily Living (ADL) and Lawton Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADL). The results showed that with regard to ADL, 41.67 per cent of males functioned fully and only 0.55 per cent had severe impairment, while 53.33 per cent of females functioned fully, 2.78 per cent had moderate impairment and 1.67 per cent had severe impairment. Regarding IADL, 16.11 per cent and 26.11 per cent of the male elderly had low and high level of functioning respectively. Among female elderly 23.89 per cent and 33.89 per cent exhibited low and high level of functioning respectively. Majority of the rural (96.66%) and urban elderly (93.33%) belonged to full function category. However, no significant association and difference between locality and ADL was observed.
