    I completed MS in Cyber Laws and Information Security from IIIT Allahabad. Working as Consultant in some private firm.
    I like to ask about the same as you said above about if u have vacancies in all these govt organizations . Why they r not recruiting us and give us opportunity to work with them.

    I saw in most of CFSL/FSL/SFIO/DIT they are having deputation process. The person from Physics/Ballastics / Chemistry division is heading the computer forensics department.

    Kindly give us opportunity to show our skill set.

    I wrote too many times to various Police departments to various states . but no replies i got.

    I am 90% sure about the same. But yes at least if u r really reading this please try to understand the situation.

    or stop such courses like MS in Cyber Law $ Information Security if our govt. do not want to change their RRs.

    (waiting for ur reply)
