Union Cabinet cleared DNA profiling Bill
05 July 2018 Current Affairs:

The Union Cabinet has cleared 'The DNA Technology (Use and Application) Regulation Bill, 2018’. This will allow the law enforcement agencies to collect DNA samples, create DNA profiles and special databanks for forensic-criminal investigations. 

The databanks can only store information related to criminal investigations and the DNA details of suspects will be deleted. 

The aim of that bill is to set in place an institutional mechanism to collect and deploy DNA technologies to identify persons based on samples collected from crime scenes or for identifying missing persons.
