Dr. A.K Iyer took charge as the head after Prof. Raosahib retired in 1983.

Mrs. J.P. Atre was the Head from 1998 till her retirement in 2010.

Currently, Mrs. Sucheta Ketkar is the Head of the department. There are six faculty members in the Department.. Department of Statistics is one of the few departments in University of Mumbai to offer Statistics at undergraduate level for B.A. and B.Sc.
