The Department of Forensic Medicine and Toxicology started functioning in the year 1986. Medico-legal work was started from year 1992 and it still holds the position of only private medical institution to conduct medico-legal autopsy and recognized Post-graduate institute in the state which immensely facilitates learning and hands on training to our undergraduates and Postgraduates.
