A generalized Poisson- Akash distribution which includes Poisson-Akash distribution has been proposed. Its factorial moments, raw moments and central moments have been derived and studied. Some statistical properties including generating functions, hazard rate function and unimodality have been discussed. Method of moments and the method of maximum likelihood have been discussed for estimating parameters of the distribution. Applications of the proposed distribution have been explained through two count datasets and compared with other discrete distributions.
