Inaugurating the first international conference on ‘Forensic Nanotechnology’ here, he said the Nanotechnology has the capacity to scientifically solve many of our problems and might soon leave a mark on almost every walk of social life. He said there is an urgent need to create competent trained technocrats to face the challenge, too.

In the wake of the criminal world moving towards high-tech and sophisticated crimes, Mr. Modi said, the criminal justice system needed to be made technology-driven, even as forensic science has many success stories in taking crime investigation through conviction.

He said that Gujarat’s Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) has earned international laurels for making criminal justice system more effective, and not just a pathological laboratory. He said the tradition of applying vermillion in the partings between hair at the time of marriage and watching the footprints of caravan of camels in the deserts have their bearings on the modern forensic science.

Nanotechnology expert V. Krishnan from Bangalore described the Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi as a person with foresight. He wished the Forensic Sciences University would ensure the application of Nanotechnology in forensic science to strengthen the system of criminal justice and revolutionize the fingerprint technology.

Union Minister of State for Home Prafull Patel, Gujarat Additional Chief Secretary (Home) Balwant Singh, Additional Chief Secretary (S&T) Ravi Saxena and Director-General of Police Chittaranjan Singh, among others attended the inaugural session. Nearly 350 forensic scientists, technocrats, legal experts and senior officers of police and security agencies are attending the two-day conference jointly organized by Science City.

February 21, 2024

The Union Cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi approved the proposal of Ministry of Home Affairs of continuation of implementation of Umbrella Scheme on ‘Safety of Women’ at a total cost of Rs.1179.72 crore during the period from 2021-22 to 2025-26.

Out of the total project outlay of Rs.1179.72 crore, a total of Rs.885.49 crore will be provided by MHA from its own budget and Rs.294.23 crore will be funded from Nirbhaya Fund.

Safety of Women in a country is an outcome of several factors like stringent deterrence through strict laws, effective delivery of justice, redressal of complaints in a timely manner and easily accessible institutional support structures to the victims. Stringent deterrence in matters related to offences against women was provided through amendments in the Indian Penal Code, Criminal Procedure Code and the Indian Evidence Act.

In its efforts towards Women Safety, Government of India in collaboration with States and Union Territories has launched several projects. The objectives of these projects include strengthening mechanisms in States/Union Territories for ensuring timely intervention and investigation in case of crime against women and higher efficiency in investigation and crime prevention in such matters.

The Government of India has proposed to continue the following projects under the Umbrella Scheme for “Safety of Women”:

  1. 112 Emergency Response Support System (ERSS) 2.0;
  2. Upgradation of Central Forensic Sciences laboratories, including setting up of National Forensic Data Centre;
  3. Strengthening of DNA Analysis, Cyber Forensic capacities in State Forensic Science Laboratories (FSLs);
  4. Cyber Crime Prevention against Women and Children;
  5. Capacity building and training of investigators and prosecutors in handling sexual assault cases against women and children; and
  6. Women Help Desk & Anti-human Trafficking Units.
