Forensic Science In India
India's first full-fledged Forensic Science Laboratory was established in 1952 in Calcutta by upgrading the Chemical Examiner Lab started in 1840's. The first Finger Print Bureau was started in Calcutta in 1897 by Sir Edward Henry, the Father of fingerprint system and the first Document Examiner's lab was established in 1906 in Shimla. A Serologist lab was established in 1950's in Calcutta.

There are also four Central Government Forensic Science Laboratories, CFSL's, situated in New Delhi, Chandigarh, Calcutta and Hyderabad and 3 Document Examiner labs, GESQD in Shimla, Calcutta and Hyderabad. Some states have Document Examiner labs outside the purview of FSLs. There are Fingerprint Bureau in all states as a part of State Crime Record Bureau (SCRB's).

Director's Message
Smt.Sharada Avadhanam M.Sc,M.A,
As all of you, I am also Interested in Forensic Science right from my childhood. The word "Forensic" is derived from a latin word "Forensis" which means belonging to courts of justice. Forensic Science broadly means application of scientific principles and techniques in the administration of justice.

The Judiciary enough evidence to convict the suspect.
