NAFIS is a centralized searchable database for crime and criminal-related fingerprints. Managed by the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) at the Central Fingerprint Bureau in New Delhi, this web-based application aims to gather fingerprint data of criminals across all states and Union Territories.

One of NAFIS’s distinguishing features is its assignment of a distinctive 10-digit National Fingerprint Number (NFN) to each individual arrested for a crime. This NFN serves as a lifelong identifier, linking different crimes registered under multiple FIRs to the same unique ID. This innovative approach not only streamlines recordkeeping but also bolsters the overall effectiveness of criminal investigations.

The National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), established on March 11, 1986, under the aegis of the Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India, plays a pivotal role in gathering and analyzing crime-related data as defined by the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Special and Local Laws (SLL).
