India: Usha Ramanathanâs Dissent on Human DNA Profiling Bill that is
coming soon in the Parliament
Human DNA Profiling Bill is being brought in Parliament probably this
Monsoon session in 2015. Bill that has been pushed by the CDFD (Centre

from Indiaâs Dept of Biotechnology.

unidentified dead bodies; create a missing personsâ index; create a
volunteers index and from anyone else as required by regulations. here
is to be a DNA Data Bank into which all our DNA data will be out and

If this goes through, this will be one dangerous data base, and one
more over which we will have no control.
