Conducting a Criminal Background Check in India
To conduct a criminal background check in India, we perform a local court search that goes back seven years. Our team of experts ensures that we provide the most comprehensive report possible by going to the Magistrate, Ecourt, and Supreme Court. To initiate the local criminal search, we will need the following information from your applicants:
Date of Birth
Father's Full Name
Complete In-Country Address (Door Number, Street Name, Area Name, City Name, State Name with Pin code)
General Release Form
The report is typically available within 2-5 business days, depending on the city and the candidate's name.
Once you checkout, our system sends out the electronic consent form(s) to your applicants. No need for you to provide this to us at all.
Search for Sex Offender Registry Information
In India, there is no national sex offender registry available. Each police district maintains their own sex offender registrant information. To obtain this information, a search is conducted through the local police district, and the report is typically available within 2-5 business days.
Other Screening Services in India
At Global Background Screening, we offer a range of other screening services in India, including:

Data Protection and Compliance in India
Staying compliant with local laws and regulations is essential when conducting background checks in India. Although there is no specific legislation on privacy and data protection, the Information Technology Act, 2000, contains specific provisions to protect electronic data. The Information Technology (Reasonable Security Practices and Procedures and Sensitive Personal Data or Information) Rules (Privacy Rules) requires corporate entities collecting, processing, and storing personal data, including sensitive personal information, to comply with certain procedures.
