Supreme Court of India endorses again the accuracy of DNA test to determine paternity dispute of a child


Recently while disposing Criminal Appeal No.24 of 2014 in the matters of Nandalal v/s Lata, the Apex Court has again endorsed the accuracy of DNA test for the determination of the issue of paternity, when the husband and wife lived to gather or had opportunities to access. The Hon’ble Supreme Court has observed that “DNA (Deoxyribonucleic Acid), which is found in the chromosomes of the cells of living beings, is the blueprint of an individual. When two unrelated people possessing the same DNA pattern have been compared, the chances of complete similarity are 1 in 30 billion to 300 billion. Given that the Earth’s population is about 5 billion, this test shall have accurate result. It has been recognized by this Court in the case of Kamti Devi (supra) that the result of a genuine DNA test is scientifically accurate.”
