From the Director's Desk
Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), Govt. of India (GoI) took a visionary step of establishing a new Central Forensic Science Laboratory (CFSL) in the North-Eastern region of the country. CFSL, Guwahati established in 2011 under Directorate of Forensic Science Services (DFSS) is one of the three new CFSLs (others are at Pune & Bhopal) along with three existing CFSLs at Hyderabad, Chandigarh and Kolkata. CFSL Guwahati is rendering its services to different law enforcement agencies of Central and State Governments. The primary aim of CFSL Guwahati is to provide high quality and credible Forensic Services to justice delivery system.
Organised and individual-based crime, as well as terrorist activities, is constantly posing threat to the society and national security. The scientific investigations, therefore, play a major role to combat the crime. Use of advanced technology and scientific means by potential criminals makes the task of detection more tedious and challenging, particularly when the technology is changing at a fast pace. CFSL Guwahati is committed to working dedicatedly to meet the challenges, develop new technologies and create new scientific knowledge to assist the justice system in an effective manner.
CFSL, Guwahati has established scientific divisions such as Ballistics, Biology, Chemistry, Documents, Electronics, Explosives, Physics, Narcotics and Toxicology. As a part of expansion plan of DFSS, MHA, Government of India; a new CFSL complex for CFSL Guwahati is being constructed on a land area of 10 Acre (30 Bigha) at Urput village, Mirza (Guwahati) under XII Five Year Plan Scheme.
