Over staying in hospital due to postoperative suture line infection is burdening to every system, a well-known fact. The uniformly nonobligatory infection control policy frame work specially in developing nation like India, causes poor participation by administration to implement the proper infection control practice until the impact of postoperative infection burden is measured. Data of all suture line infection has been collected in desired format from the various departments of 1200 bedded hospital and subsequently data of obstetrics cases analyzed on cost estimated to nearest assumption for suture line infection. There is almost 8-12 times more economic burden on system in comparison to management of normal course uncomplicated case management. There is need of obligation to implement effective infection control practices uniformly in every health set ups.
