Suppose I have 1000x1 matrix and my data is from (50,60) and then from (160,170) and so on (i.e randomly distributed), What I want is to find maximum out of this 50 to 60 location and then maximum from 160 to 170 location and so on. How to find this ?

Are those data ranges or are they index locations ?
If they are index locations, are the locations known ahead of time?

index locations
Rohan Mehta on 22 Jun 2019
yes these locations are stored in another matrix

Suppose mat is 1000x1 matrix
%this will give the maximum value within the matrix uptp 50 rows and 60 colm
mat1=mat(1:50,1:60);
max1=max(mat1(:));
You can do the same form other also
mat2=mat(1:160,1:170);
max2=max(mat2(:));
Is this you are looking for?

to read the index of maximum elements do the following
max1=max(a(:));
[r1,c1]=find(a==max1)
As your comment is confusing, though the question seems easy, thats why I have provided the how to find maimum from a matrix and read the index of maximum elements. Rest you can store the indeces as you want.

Hello Sir this piece of code almost solved my problem As I have found all the maximums but one doubt is how to assign the location's of these maximum to another matrix ?

The second part of comment is not clear for me.
Are you looking for this one?
mat_other(r1,c1)
%..........^ index values from first matrix having maximum value
