A Poisson-Weighted Akash distribution which includes Poisson-Akash distribution has been proposed. Its moments and moments based statistical constants have been derived and studied. Maximum likelihood estimation has been discussed for estimating the parameters of the distribution. Finally, applications of the proposed distribution have been explained through two count datasets and the goodness of fit has been compared with other discrete distributions.
