The Generalized Pareto Distribution is considered as a model for maximum rainfall data in Pakistan. The rain fall data available for ten stations in Pakistan is utilized. The test statistics of Kolmogrov Smirnov, Cramer Von Mises, Anderson Darling and Modified Anderson Darling are obtained. The rainfall intensity estimates are derived with different return periods.
