The development of pathogens regarding drug-resistant impersonates high public health threat. Though there are different factors involved, a high level of resistance is typically interlinked with mutations in related genes. For the specific objective to build a better understanding of molecular biology and epidemiology about RRM TB strains happened in 40 isolates (RR 23 and RSS “Rifampin-sensitive strains” 17) erudite from 2015 to 2017 were assessed by molecular techniques. The mutations fitness cost is a specific key element of RR strains. RIF (Rifampin) is a vanguard anti-TB agent which targets β subunit the rpoBencoded of RNA polymerase of the DNA-dependent. RNAP function has a strong effect of RIF resistance to a mutation in rpoB specifically in MTB (Mycobacterium tuberculosis). After the drug resistance profile assessment regarding 23 RR isolates exposed a resistant to Rifampin was 91% specifically in connection with 88% isoniazid resistance which associated with first isolated Rifampin and 81% revealed as Rifabutin cross-resistance. We analyze the diver's bacterial systems’ evidence specifically revealed the effect of rpoB on cellular physiology and take those observations in the background of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Furthermore, there will be a discussion on these finding’s implications for RIF mutations propagation. Though our concentration is on RIF, we struggled to highlight the outputs advising the DI effect (drug independent effects) on the obligate pathogen highly associated with RR. RR isolates of 21 patients who were captured by RFLP (“Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism”) assessment, the eighteen exclusive patterns have been attained through IS6110 Analysis (an insertion component found in Mycobacterium TB Complex) and 3 clusters isolates were found
