The Department was set up in 1988 to provide facilities for teaching, training and research in Statistics. Since

then it is actively involved in theoretical and practical studies of real life situations from the modeling and analytical

point of view. The faculties of the Department have collaborative research work with scientists of various organizations

within and outside India. Some of them have held Common Wealth Fellowship and Scholarship tenable at U. K. In

addition, the faculties advise and assist teachers and research scholars of other Departments of the University in

Statistical Analysis of their data. Until the year-2012, twenty nine research scholars of the Department have been

awarded Ph. D. Degree. The Department Library has over 2200 books. The Department has a Computer Lab with 20

Personal Computers along with packages such as SPSS and SYSTAT. The teaching–learning process has been enhanced

now augmenting with the ICT enabled Smart Class Room Environments, visual presenter and other equipments such as

OHP and LCD Projector. The Department wishes to address several societal and industrial problems through modern

statistical methodologies.  Apart from many emerging areas of statistics the focal theme of the department, in the coming

years, includes ‘official statistics’. The Department has an active Alumni Association.
