·        The analyses and results of forensic laboratories at the State/Central level are critical for the criminal justice system.

·        This ranges from crime scene reconstruction, photography, collection and packaging of evidence, digital and cyber forensics, examination of handwriting, signatures, photograph, fingerprints and currency, and chemical and biological forensics, among others.

·        The right to a bias-free and speedy investigation is the right of every citizen enshrined under Article 21 of the Constitution.

·        For a moment, consider the 4.7 crore cases pending in India at different levels of the judiciary. Out of these, four crore are pending at the District Court level and many might be pending due to lack of forensic report.

·        For evidence of biological or chemical nature, chances of contamination and scope of manipulation are directly proportional to the time taken to analyse them thereby increasing the margin of error in a scientific procedure and therefore the final case itself.

·        There has been discourse in civil society that calls for an increased judge-to-population ratio, as the judicial system in India is under tremendous pressure.

·        In a scenario with a significant number of pending cases, one can imagine the volume of pendency caused by lack of forensic processing on time.
