Establishing personal Identity is a very important concern in Forensic investigations. Estimation of stature gives a basic domain of the investigation process in unknown and co-mingled human remains in forensic anthropology case work. The objective of the present study was to set up standards for estimation of stature from width and foot length in a sub-adult Male and female Naga population. The stature Estimation was done with linear regression equation of 200 students (100 males and 100 females) with no disabilities. The regression factors were computed and checked for their accuracy and reliability. High significant positive correlation (r=0.67) for males and (r=0.81) for females was observed. Our study provides equation that can help in estimation of stature.
