History
History

The Statistical Laboratory in the Presidency College, Kolkata was set up by Mahalanobis in the Physics Department of the college in 1920s. On 17 December 1931, the Indian Statistical Institute was founded as a learned society and was housed in the Statistical Laboratory. In 1931, Mahalanobis was the only person working for ISI and he managed it with an annual expenditure of Rs. 250. Many colleagues of Mahalanobis took an interest in statistics and the group grew in the Statistical Laboratory. A meeting was called on the 17 December 1931 with Pramatha Nath Banerji (Minto Professor of Economics), Nikhil Ranjan Sen (Khaira Professor of Applied Mathematics) and Sir R. N. Mukherji. This meeting led to the establishment of the Indian Statistical Institute (ISI), and formally registered on 28 April 1932 as a non-profit distributing learned society under the Societies Registration Act XXI of 1860.

Later, it was registered under the West Bengal Societies Registration Act XXVI of 1961 amended in 1964.

The ISI was relocated to a property owned by Professor Mahalanobis, named "Amrapali", in Baranagar, North Kolkata.

It gradually grew with the pioneering work of a group of his colleagues including S. S. Bose, J. M. Sengupta, R. C. Bose, S. N. Roy, K. R. Nair, R. R. Bahadur, G. Kallianpur and D. B. Lahiri. The institute also gained major assistance through Pitamber Pant, who was a secretary to the Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru. Pant was trained in statistics at the Institute and took a keen interest in the institute.

In 1933, the journal Sankhya was also founded along the lines of Karl Pearson s Biometrika.

The Institute started a training section in 1938. Many of the early workers left the ISI for careers in the USA and with the government of India. Mahalanobis invited J. B. S. Haldane to join him at the ISI and Haldane joined as a Research Professor from August 1957 and stayed on until February 1961. He resigned from ISI due to frustrations with the administration and disagreements with Mahalanobis s administrative policies. He was also very concerned with the frequent travels and absence of the director and wrote The journeyings of our Director define a novel random vector. Haldane however helped the ISI grow in biometrics.

In 1959 the Institute was declared as an Institute of national importance and a deemed university.

Later, ISI expanded to locations in New Delhi and Bangalore and other cities. Presently, ISI Kolkata has a campus consisting of six addresses: 201 through 206 Barrackpore Trunk Road. These include a house, which was an erstwhile office of National Sample Survey Organisation (NSSO) of India, and prior to that, a movie studio in the 1920s and 1930s.

In 2008, ISI expanded to a new centre in Chennai

The Central Library of ISI is located at Kolkata with a network extending to other locations of the Institute. Over the years, the library has attained the distinction of being one of the richest libraries of the country, particularly in the field of Statistics and related disciplines. The Central Library at Kolkata has over 200,000 volumes of books and journals besides many official reports, reprints, maps, and microfilms. It receives about one thousand scientific and technical journals annually. The Library has acquired databases on CD-ROM and further digitization of the library facilities is in progress. The library has developed a separate collection of books and journals in Mathematics and Statistics known as Eastern Regional Centre of NBHM collection, out of the grants from the National Board for Higher Mathematics.

Message from the Director

The Indian Statistical Institute is one of the leading academic institutions in the world. It has a long and proud tradition of excellence in training, teaching and research in a number of academic disciplines including statistics, mathematics, computer science, economics, biology, geology, physics and social science. It attracts some of the brightest minds from all over India, and its alumni have made outstanding contributions to academics, governance and industry. The webpage of the Institute, which has been in existence for quite a few years, providing useful information to one and all about its various facets, has recently been redesigned.

Introduction
Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata was established on 17th December 1931 by Prof. P.C. Mahalanobis, the renowned Indian scientist and applied statistician, who pioneered the work on anthropometric variation in India. Prof. Mahalanobis, recipient of the Padma Vibhushan award by the Government of India, contributed prominently to the cause of industrialization and economic development of a newly independent India while working with his colleagues at the Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata.

The humble origins of ISI Kolkata began in 1931 in a small room in Presidency College, Kolkata as a non-profit organization under the Societies Registration Act (XXI of 1860). Today, ISI Kolkata is a state-of-the-art Institute dedicated to the research, teaching and application of statistics, natural sciences and social sciences that has an annual expenditure of over Rs. 15,000,000.

The ISI is considered as a center for excellence and is famous worldwide. The Second Five Year Plan for the country was draft at this institute as then Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru entrusted Professor Mahalanobis, he added. Thanking the Chief Minister for allotting 25 acres of land for the institute, he added that Rs 150 crore was allotted for onstruction works. He also expressed his deep appreciation to authority of TezpurUniversity for providing the academic building as well the hostels, so that the ISI can commence the academic session from Monday next. Srikant Jena, Minister of State for Statistics and Programme Implementation, who also attended the function said that ISI came into being in the early 30s following the pioneering efforts of Prof PC Mahalanobis, a renowned scientist and applied statistician. The outstanding contributions made by theinstitute in theoretical and applied statistical work culminated in the recognition of the institute as an institute of national importance, he added. The Centre is sponsoring the India Statistical Strengthening Project (ISSP), a scheme being implemented at an estimated cost of Rs 650.43 crore, with 80% being funded through a World Bank loan and the balance 20% being borne by Govt of India. The objective of ISSP is to strengthen and improve the State statistical systems and operations in accordance with prescribed standards in terms of quality, timeliness, adequacy, relevancy, and user friendliness and user satisfaction.
