Indian Statistical Institute was founded by Prof. P. C. Mahalanobis in 1931 with the mission of research and developmental activities in the field of statistics and other disciplines of natural and social sciences where statistics can be applied, for the  mutual development of statistics and other such related subjects. In 1955, it was declared as an Institute of national importance by an act of Parliament. The Institute has been empowered to confer degrees in statistics, mathematics, economics and computer science. Over all these years, the activities of the institute have encompassed  diverse disciplines of statistics, mathematics, economics, computer science, physics, geology, biology, anthropology, social science, linguistics, quality control, and so on. Some of the unique features of this Institute in the field of computer science include  its contribution in i) Installation of the first ever digital computer of the country in this Institute as early as in 1958, ii) design, development and commissioning of the first ever indigenous digital computer (ISIJU) of the country in 1966, iii) introduction of the first ever formal course on computer science in early sixties in the form of a one-year post-graduate diploma in computer science, followed by a two-year PG diploma, followed by the current M.Tech. program in Computer Science which started in1981. The Institute has devoted to the research and development in various disciplines of computer science right from late seventies till date covering a wide range of topics like architectures, algorithms, VLSI design, testing and verification, networking, parallel and distributed computing, mobile computing, wireless and sensor networks, computational geometry, big data analytics, crowd-sourced computing, social networks,  pattern recognition, image processing, natural language processing, soft computing, quantum computing, and so on.

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. This road (Girish Chand Ghosh Street) connects B.T. Road with Gopal Lal Tagore Road, a road which runs along the western boundary of the main campus. The office complex bears door numbers 203, 204, and the residential complex, 205. There is a connection between the two parts of the campus through a subway; to move between the residential and office complexes.

How to Reach ISI

The ISI campus lies five kilometers North of the Shyambazar five-point crossing. If you are coming from the airport, drive towards Dunlop Bridge (via Nager Bazar and Chiria More). If you are coming from the downtown area or one of the railway stations, you will have to drive past Shyambazar and Chiria More. As you approach Dunlop Bridge, the boundary wall of the ISI campus will be visible on your left. The residential campus is at the Bus Stop called Bon Hooghly and the office campus is at the Bus Stop called ISI or Statistical. The Bus Stop further to the Statistical Bus Stop is Dunlop Bridge, which is an important landmark. Dunlop Bridge is also a useful way of describing the general destination when you are asking for directions.


Kolkata has a huge fleet of Black and Yellow taxis, most of which are Ambassadors. They run on an Electronic meter that starts at Rs. 25/-. Please ensure that the meter is started at the beginning of the journey. You need to pay the exact fare displayed on screen. If you are coming from the airport or one of the railway stations, it is better to hire a taxi from the prepaid taxi booth. Mention the destination as Dunlop Bridge at the pre-paid Taxi booth counter. In this case you have to pay the total fare at the taxi booth. The prepaid taxi fare is marginally higher than normal, but it is a surer and safer mode of transport.


There are a large number of buses and minibuses that pass by the Institute campus. Almost any bus that goes to Dunlop Bridge passes by the ISI gates. The buses that pass by the ISI gates are 3, 32A, 34B/1, 78, 78/1, 78A, 78B, 78C, 201, 214, 230, 234, DN9, DN9/1, 9A, L20, S11, S32 and GL32. The minibuses plying from Howrah to Nimta/Belgharia/Rathtala, from BBD Bag to Dunlop Bridge, from Babughat to Sodepur/New Barrackpore, and Garia to Belur Math (Via Ultadanga, E M Bypass) go past the ISI gates before reaching Dunlop Bridge. While riding the bus from the city, the major bus stops on your way (from South to North) would be Shyambazar, Chiria More, Sinthi More and Tobin Road. The Bon Hooghly Bus Stop is just after the Ananya Cinema stoppage. This is where you have to get down in order to enter the residential campus at 205 B T Road. The next Bus Stop is ISI / Statistical, which is located just outside the entrance of the main office campus at 203 B.T. Road.
