In this paper, a parametric linear transformation model is considered with left truncated and interval censored case I data. The maximum likelihood estimators of the regression parameters are computed. The testing of hypotheses regarding to the parameters are also performed. An extensive Monte Carlo simulation technique was used to compute the proposed estimators along with some of their properties
