Statistical theory of the dielectric susceptibility of polar liquid crystals is proposed. The molecules are not uniaxial but similar to cones. It is assumed that the permanent dipole moment of a molecule is parallel to the axis of the rotational symmetry. The ordering of the phase is described by means of the mean field theory based on the Maier-Saupe approach. The theory was used to calculate the temperature dependence of the order parameters and the susceptibilities. Predictions of the model for different sets of parameters are investigated.
