The Department of Statistics was established in the year 1958. Prof. Rameswar Chakraborty was the founder-head of the department. This is the first ever department that pioneered teaching and learning of Statistics in the state of Tripura. The students of the department have been consistently doing well in the different Government as well as in Private Service sector in India and abroad also. The strength of the department, however, lies in its continual search for excellence and for its endeavour to adapt itself to the changing scenario of Statistics as a subject and to keep abreast with the best in the emerging fields. The department offers B.Sc. courses in Major and General.
