Handwriting is a person’s particular & individual style of writing with pen or pencil, which contrasts with “Hand’’ which is an impersonal and formalized writing style in several historical varieties. In the present study 100 samples of handwriting were collected for the “Identification of handedness of author on the basis of their strokes and characteristic features’’. Out of 100 handwriting samples, 50 were left-handed writer and 50 were right-handed writer. The study was carried out at the School of Forensic-Science, SHIATS, Allahabad.
