Background: There are various scientific studies in literature which have pointed high prevalence of Vitamin D deficiency in elderly Indian population but there is no study which has shown that adequate Vitamin D supplementation can improve the bone and muscle health or increase the bone mineral density (BMD) in this age group.

Aims and Objectives: (1) The primary objective of this study was to evaluate the role of Vitamin D supplementation in the improvement of BMD in elderly Indian population. (2) The secondary objective is to observe the change in serum Vitamin D levels by oral supplementation of Vitamin D in this age group.
