Since hypertension was multi-factorial, familial occurrence of primary hypertension, recommended that certain genetic factors responsible for hypertension development. The ABO blood group distribution system would provide much valuable information for early detection of susceptible peoples.

Materials and Methods: A cross-sectional study conducted in normal population of Agra city, who were willing to participate in the study. By using multistage random sampling, total 1200 participants aged 25–50 years selected in this study.

Results: Mean age of the participants in current study was 35.66±8.2 years and majority were 25–35 years old (n=666). Male participants were in majority (63%). Distribution of blood group in decreasing orders were B (38.6%) > O (28.5%) > A (24.2%) > AB (8.7%). Pre-hypertension was present in 66.2% participants and Hypertension in 12.2% participants. There was statistically significant association of ABO blood group with gender and blood pressure.
