I am from mumbai India now March month summer started. I wateredenter image description here twice a week althoug my baby chillies are falling off after the polination, I used vermi compost as fertilizer.

  • Is twice a week enough? We (automatically) watered our Eggplants and Tomatos - both also nightshades multiple time a day [as dictated by amount if sunlight ] I syspect @winwaed is correct that maybe its to hot. – davidgo Mar 19 '19 at 19:01

I see this in Texas during the middle of summer - and always put it down to heat, as it happens even with lots of watering. Some varieties handle the heat better than others (eg. 'Gypsy' bell does well for us).

I find fruiting is early summer before it gets too hot, and then from September through to the first frost. So during the summer heat, I just keep them watered and make sure they grow, so I have nice large, healthy plants ready for when it cools sufficiently for fruit to form.
