Troop size of Hanuman langur was ranges between 03 individuals to 20 with a mean troop size of 10.17 individuals ( t – Test:=0.05, P=0.132, P< , significant) t-Test result reveals that, there was statistically  significant  difference in Individuals in Troop and population size. Among the population, Adult female was found to be highest 52.5%, followed by 21.2% was same for Adult male and Juveniles and 4.9% was Infants. In total population size of Hunuman langur age- sex ratio, the estimated adult male and adult female was 82: 203. Again, the Adult Female: Juveniles ratio was 203:82, that of Adult Male: Juveniles ratio was 1:1 and Juveniles: Infants ratio was 82:19.
