Message from Scientific Director


The Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports (MYAS), Government of India has identified the need for establishing NDTL as the sole organisation in the country for focusing on the mission of fair play and clean sports. We, at NDTL, are really indebted to MYAS for their continued support and guidance all through ever since its creation. We are equally grateful to the World Anti Doping Agency (WADA) for its sustained help in our journey to achieve our mission.

Over the years, NDTL has enhanced both qualitatively and quantitatively in analytical testing, developing new methods/protocols, and, in the process, sustained an effective fight against doping in sports. However, with the advent of new drugs, methodology in testing, there is always a scope for improvement through research and development, and, NDTL remains prepared to share and acquire new knowledge/ideas, and, for meeting the new challenges.

I take this opportunity to invite all the stakeholders, in general, and, the general public, in particular, to periodically visit our website and provide us with their valuable suggestions for enhancing our knowledge in testing and experience in the field of human sports & horse doping and for the benefits of sports fraternity of the entire globe.
