About Us

The Indian Statistical Institute (ISI) was established by Professor P. C. Mahalanobis on 28th April, 1932 as a registered non-profit distributing learned society with the headquarters in Kolkata. Later, the Institute set up two Centres in Delhi (1974) and Bangalore (1978) and a branch in Giridih, along with a network of Units of Statistical Quality Control and Operations Research at Baroda, Mumbai, Pune, Coimbatore, Chennai, and Hyderabad.
