In this paper, we have defined a new two-parameter new Lindley half Cauchy (NLHC) distribution using Lindley-G family of distribution which accommodates increasing, decreasing and a variety of monotone failure rates. The statistical properties of the proposed distribution such as probability density function, cumulative distribution function, quantile, the measure of skewness and kurtosis are presented. We have briefly described the three well-known estimation methods namely maximum likelihood estimators (MLE), least-square (LSE) and Cramer-Von-Mises (CVM) methods. All the computations are performed in R software. By using the maximum likelihood method, we have constructed the asymptotic confidence interval for the model parameters. We verify empirically the potentiality of the new distribution in modeling a real data set.
