AboutCentral fingerprint bureau: The World’s First fingerprint Bureau was set up in Calcutta in 1897. A CFPB was established at Shimla in 1905. However, it was closed in 1922 as a result of the retrenchment proposals of the Inchcape Committee.

The Present CFPB came into existence in 1955 under the administrative control of the Intelligence Bureau at Delhi. It was relocated to Kolkata in 1956.  The administrative control of CFPB shifted to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in 1973, and since 1986, this has been under the administrative control of NCRB.
