Amit you did a very common mistake for beginners

You use the ( ' ) key  instead of the correct (`) key!

Try the following command and everything is ok.

<< Statistics`NormalDistribution`

That is the two singles quotes used here are "back quotes"
usually found on the same key with ~.
They are NOT the single quotes found on the double-quote key.

Note that the back-quote character is used to separate the package
from the directory name, and at the end in place of .m.

See the following link for more information.

http://documents.wolfram.com/mathematica/book/section-2.7.9

Following also one of the invaluable suggestions of David Park
I recomend you to use the following command in order to load the
package.

Needs["Statistics'NormalDistribution`"]

In this way you avoid conflicts of possible reloading of the package.

Regards
Dimitris
