Indian Statistical Institute (ISI), 2021


The Indian Statistical Institute, known widely as ISI, was founded in 1931 by Professor Prasanta Chandra Mahalanobis. Growing out of a small Statistical Laboratory set up by Professor Mahalanobis in the Presidency College in Kolkata, the Institute soon moved into its present campus at Baranagar on the northern outskirts of Kolkata.

The headquarters of the Institute is located in Kolkata. However, centres of the Institute have come up over the years in other major cities. At present, the Institute has four centres operating at Delhi, Bengaluru, Chennai and Tezpur.
