It has been created after many years of studies and study that the papillary ridges on the hands \' fingers and palms and the sole of the feet\'s toes stay true to the mould in which they were formed by nature throughout their lives, unless their symmetry is permanently interrupted by some deep seated injury. These ridges created during the first few months of fetal life not only stay unchanged during lifetime, but after death appear to have the unique property of out lasting any other identifiable body characteristic. Due to the enormous potential of fingerprints as an efficient identification tool, an attempt was made to examine the association with an individual\'s blood group. In this research paper, fingerprints from a total of 250 learners from Karnatak Science College, campus Dharwad, have gathered 125 male topics and 125 female subjects with distinct A B AB O blood groups belong to distinct age groups, the blood group is another biological record that remains unchanged throughout the lifetime of a person. Determining the blood group of a suspect from the crime scene discussions helps to identify an individual. In the blood group scheme A B AB O, Landsteiner classified blood groups .It is suggested to research the correlation between blood groups and fingerprint patterns on a larger sample, particularly demographic groups.
