Getting Fingerprinted in India:

Obtaining your fingerprints for a Canadian criminal record check in India is a straightforward process. Here's what you need to do:

1. Find Your Local District Police Station:

Not all police stations offer fingerprinting services. Locate a local district police station, as they are better equipped for this service. You can obtain a list of these stations from the police or a fingerprinting agency.

2. Visit in Person:

Once you've identified the nearest local district police station, visit them in person.

3. Fingerprinting Locations:

Your fingerprints can be taken at various police stations or fingerprinting agencies across India. Here are some examples:

  • Mumbai: Spylens Forensic Lab, Vashi, Navi Mumbai

  • Gujarat: Police Inspector, Malaviyanagar Police Station, Rajkot City

  • Mumbai: National Crime Records Bureau, Crawford Market, Mumbai

  • New Delhi: J.K. Consultancy, Dwarka, New Delhi

  • Maharashtra: Athale Ulhas, Nagpur, Maharashtra

  • Chennai: State Crime Records Bureau (SCRB), Raja Annamalai Puram, Chennai
