He was addressing the gathering after inaugurating the Mathematical Sciences block in ‘Ramanujan', the new building of the C.R. Rao Advanced Institute of Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Sciences (AIMSCS), at the University of Hyderabad (UoH), here on Monday.

Great respect

Pointing out to the key role played by statistics in planning, Mr. Gill said it was indicative of the importance attached to the subject, adding that Indians in general and those specialising in the subject were greatly respected across the world.

Eminent statistician C.R. Rao, who was instrumental in setting up the institute, acknowledged the praise showered on him by speakers and narrated the beginnings of AIMSCS.
