Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is a premier investigating agency of India, operating under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions. Founded on 1st April 1963, CBI consists of various divisions i.e., Anti Corruption Division, Economic Offences Division, Special Crimes Division, Directorate of Prosecution, Administration Division, Policy & Coordination Division, and Central Forensic Science Laboratory.
The organisation has evolved from an anti-corruption agency to a multi-faceted, multi-disciplinary central police law enforcement agency with the capability, credibility and legal mandate to investigate and prosecute offences anywhere in India.
