Dear,

Being a graduate in pharmacy you can apply for M.sc. in Forensic. But if you want to join this field you need to have gritty determination because it takes a lot of patience and sometimes tasks are very challenging. The task of forensic scientists is very challenging as well as adventurous nowadays, due to the increase in the rate of organized crime. Therefore, organizations in India that deal with forensic science, especially forensic laboratories, are recruiting talented professionals in the field of forensic science.

If you want to see yourself as forensic scientist in future then there are a lot of opportunities in for you in this field. You can work with police departments, law enforcing agencies, legal systems and investigative agencies. Besides, they can also work with private detective agencies.

The state forensic departments employ professionals through the state public service commission exam. The CBI's forensic laboratory in Delhi recruits candidates through the Union Public Service Commission exams. You can also be employed in the vigilance department. Specialization in various branches of forensic sciences like forensic anthropology, forensic archeology, forensic serology, provides a candidate ample job opportunities. You can also take up teaching in colleges and teach criminology courses. For freelancing, one needs a certification by the state forensics department. Forensic scientists also work for making psychological profiles of offenders by analyzing the crime scene and the crimes committed. You can also work abroad after gaining experience in India.

A post graduate in forensic science may get a starting salary of Rs 6,000 to Rs 8,000 per month. But the remuneration may vary from one organization to another; it varies from private companies to government companies

There are several institutes which provide courses in Forensic Science at various levels. Here I am providing you name of good institutes:

Lok Nayak Jayaprakash Narayan National Institute of Criminology and Forensic Science, Delhi

Dr. Harisingh Gour Vishwa Vidyalaya, Sagar (Madhya Pradesh)
