The study is based on primary data and the total number of 120 farmers treated as respondents and had been selected from all four categories of farmers by adopting proportion allocation with simple random sampling without replacement method with the objective of cost of cultivation and economic return from chilli grower B:C ratio of chilli in the study area. In this the study says that the overall average total cost of cultivation is Rs. 328225.25. The study reveals that returns in chilli cultivation increases with the increase of the farm size and the overall benefit-cost ratio are 2.41. The average cost, of cultivation per hectare of overall basis, was found to have 147024.50 (costA1) followed by Rs.150625.25 (costB1); Rs.29600.2 (costB2); Rs. 182850.25 (cost C1); Rs. 328225.25 (costC2); Rs. 361047.78 (CostC3) has been noted consequently. The average yield was found to be 72.00 quintals per hectare. The overall gross income per hectare was observed to be Rs. 872250.00 per hectare.
