An alternative form of hyper-Poisson distribution is introduced through its probability mass function and studies some of its important aspects such as mean, variance, expressions for its raw moments, factorial moments, probability generating function and recursion formulae for its probabilities, raw moments and factorial moments. The estimation of the parameters of the distribution by various methods are considered and illustrated using some real life data sets.
