A DNA test is often the only authentic and reliable method of biological identification of an individual, establishing biological relationships, and identification of a criminal. DNA tests are done mostly for peace of mind. However, there are cases when a DNA test may be intended for legal use. Legal DNA Tests in India have been used extensively for marital and property disputes, legal guardianship of a child, inheritance of property or will, and several other cases.
Legal DNA Tests in India are often called court-admissible DNA tests or court-approved DNA Tests. At DNA Forensics Laboratory (DFL), we are the only private company providing Legal DNA Tests in India for honorable courts of law.
What are the Processes Involved in Legal DNA Tests in India?
The first step while going for a Legal DNA Test in India is the sample collection.
Unlike a peace of mind DNA test, Legal DNA Tests in India require sample collection under a chain of custody. First of all, the judge hearing your case will order the district or state forensic laboratory for the DNA test, but if you want to get the DNA test from an accredited private lab, you have to request the same from the hearing judge.
On the assigned date, the lab visits the courtroom and takes the samples of the involved parties in front of the hearing judge. In many cases, the judge may appoint a court representative under whose supervision the sample collection will take place.
In Legal DNA Tests in India, the tested parties do not get the test report. Instead, the report is directly sent to the hearing judge. This is so done for the discretion of the test reports.
The methodology behind Legal DNA tests in India is the same as a peace of mind relationship DNA test – the STR Profiling.
In STR profiling, the long strand DNA molecule is broken down into smaller fragments of repeating base-pair sequences. After amplification (using Polymerase Chain Reaction), the individual DNA profiles of the tested parties are generated and compared.
If the resultant profiles are a 99.9 % match, the biological relationship is established. If it’s a 0% match, the relationship is not established.
