The present study was undertaken on sixty farmers during 2009-10 to examine the economic analysis of Naga King chilli and to assess the resource use efficiency and sustainability value indices of Naga King chilli on different farm size groups. The resource use-efficiency on pooled data for Naga King chilli was found to be maximum on human labour (5.388), followed by seed cost (3.458133) and it found to have negative impact on marketing cost (-3.42835) and FYM cost (-3.54689), respectively. Further it was observed that on pooled data the sustainability value indices was recorded as 0.599. As per the client satisfaction index 46.67 per cent were of medium group, followed by 30.00 per cent on low satisfied, while remaining 23.33 per cent were highly satisfied with the extension services available at present. It was further observed, on rank based quotient the foremost constraints was lack of warehouse / go down for proper storage, followed by lack of market information, problem of credit facilities, lack of transportation facilities, etc, which indicated that if such situation alter or taken care, there is great potential to enhance the Naga King chilli growers income subsequently global economy.
