Overview

Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata is a Civil Service and Research institute in West Bengal which is recognized as an institute of national importance by the 1959 act of the Indian parliament. Established in 1931 and oiginally affiliated with the University of Calcutta, it grew out of the Statistical Laboratory set up by Prasanta Chandra Mahalanobis in Presidency College, Kolkata and is one of the oldest institutions focused on statistics. ISI functions under the Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation (MOSPI) of the Government of India.

Mahalanobis, the founder of ISI, was deeply influenced by wisdom and guidance of Rabindranath Tagore and Brajendranath Seal. Under Mahalanobis’ leadership, the institute initiated and promoted the interaction of statistics with natural and social sciences to advance the role of statistics as a key technology by explicating the twin aspects – its general applicability and its dependence on other disciplines for its own development. Its early reputation led it to being adopted as a model for the first US institute of Statistics set up at the Research Triangle, North Carolina by Gertrude Mary Cox.

The institute is now considered as one of the foremost centres in the world for training and research in computer science, statistics, quantitative economics and related sciences. Key areas of expertise of ISI are statistics, computer science, mathematics, mathematical economics, operations research and information science and it is one of the few research oriented Indian schools offering courses at both the undergraduate and graduate level.

Campus

The Kolkata campus of the Indian Statistical Institute is located in a sprawling 30-acre estate on the Barrackpore Trunk Road (B.T. Road) in the Baranagore suburb of Greater Kolkata. It consists of two approximately equal parts – the office complex and the residential complex, – separated by a public road (Girish Chand Ghosh Street). The principal buildings in the office complex are the main building, the geology building, the library building, the administration building and the Amrapali.

Also having branches in other facilities, the main branch also has a collection of official reports, reprints, maps, and microfilms. The library receives over a thousand new technical and scientific journals every year and has databases on CD-ROM and is working on further digitization of the collection. The library has a separate collection of works on the topics of mathematics and statistics called the Eastern Regional Centre of NBHM collection, funded by grants from the National Board for Higher Mathematics.
