Mukund Chand Chakrabarti (died 1972) a statistician from Bengal of the British India was the founder head of the department of statistics, University of Mumbai India. He nurtured the department from its birth in 1948 until he died in 1972.[2] The department of mathematics at University of Mumbai was established later in 1963 under the guidance of Professor S. S. Shrikhande.

Chakrabarti was known for his work in design of experiments. He guided a number of students for their Ph.D.s in statistics from University of Mumbai. He was also associated with University of Pune where his notes on design of experiments were taught and he used to come as external examiner for the practical examination.[3]

In 1972, Chakrabarti died of a heart attack in Mumbai.
