How to introduce constraints to my objective function (Genetic Algorithm)

I am trying to solve a optimization problem with constraints using genetic algorithm solver. I tried to write my constraints by looking over the documentation matlab provides but The results i am getting are not consistent with the results i expect. (My answer should be around 5k or 6k but the answer i am getting changes around 13k to 18k) I suspect that the solver does not recognizes my constraints. Here i will attach the file i am working on. If you can have a look and suggest a solution i will be very happy.
Thank you in advance.

You have at least two errors that keep the constraint function from working properly. First, this section needs a loop such as for i = 1:something:
function [c] = constraintFunction(x,yj,p, M , r, aii, Kj)
if ci(i,1) > 0
xij(i,j) = 1;
xij(i,j) = 0;
Second, you never included this constraint function in the constraints in your script. It is just hanging there, never called. Put it in as a nonlinear constraint. Click the "Nonlinear constrants" button and then include the function. And if you mean for some variables to be integers, put that in as constraints as well.
