Abstract: Scientific evidence is one of the crucial and vital aspects to ensure the administration of justice. The involvement of forensic methods of investigations holds an important place in the investigation procedure and provides practical solutions to the existing criminal circumstances. Forensic evidence in the criminal justice delivery system is used as an influential instrument to inspect crimes and suspects so that cases are resolved as per authentic evidence and no innocent is punished. In the wake of recent developments in science and technology we cannot ignore the evidence of an expert in a criminal trial which is presented before the Court involving novel forensic methods. The judicial discretion vested upon the trial judges in admitting expert evidence is a major lacuna where the Courts are completely kept in dark on matters of science. The Courts are finding it difficult to assess the reliability of the techniques that are associated with the scientific evidence. It is therefore need of the hour a comprehensive law has to be brought in to regulate the scientific expert evidence and its admissibility in trials. This paper deals with the Admissibility and Evidentiary Value of Scientific Evidence and the law and judicial approach relating to the admissibility of reports/opinion forensic experts and other experts in the Indian courts. The reference has been given to some important judgements on the subject concerned. The relevant discussion is regarding the relevancy and evidentiary value of the expert reports/opinions vis-à-vis law relating to the same.
