Though this article does not claim to represent an all inclusive account of the past and present of medical genetics in India; it is an attempt to revisit the past developments and assess the current scenario. The progress over last 2–3 decades have brought state of art molecular diagnostics to India and along with excellent clinical skills in dysmorphology and metabolic disorders; specialty of medical genetics has been well-established in India bringing the greatest benefit to the patients with genetic disorders and their families. However, though a beginning has been made, the research in the area of genetic disorders still lags behind in the areas of understanding pathogenesis and new drug developments. Research in gene therapy and stem cell therapy is almost nonexistent. Research and development in these areas and recombinant products will go a long way in making the new therapies available to Indian patients at affordable costs.
