Hi Rubha;

This should give you what you need.

List<Employees> empList = new List<Employees>();
// ... List gets filled


var results = from emp in empList
              group emp by emp.Department into deptGroup
              select new
              {
                  Designation = deptGroup.Key,
                  NoOfEmployees = deptGroup.Count()
              };
