    Hello Mr. Panchal!

     Ideally a person should walk 45 mins a day for atleast 5 days a week.

    But there are a lot of factors to be considered. If the person cannot walk for 45 mins at a stretch then he/she may walk for 15 mins thrice a day with intermittent breaks.

    If the person turns breathless or has any signs of discomfort then medical intervention is necessary.

    Also, most important is to wear comfortable shoes while walking (ideally flat, covered and well fitting shoes). And one must not walk for atleast 1 hour after meals.
