About Us

Just like the Police and Judiciary, the Prisons establishment is also an important and useful part of our criminal justice system. Prisons have an important and useful role to play in establishing the rule of law and maintaining peace and order in the society.The physical and practical shape of prisons, as well as their objectives and expectations from them, have kept changing as a result of evolution, development and changes in the society.

The Prison system is a useful and significant component of the criminal justice system, just like the Police and the Judiciary. Prisons play an important role in maintaining balance in society by helping establish peace and rule of law. As a result of the development of civilization and social change, the physical and functional nature, expectations and objectives of prisons are also evolving.

The main objective of the Prison system is to ensure secure detention of prisoners, help in their rehabilitation and integration into the mainstream of society, and to ensure that do not turn towards crime after their release, by providing them moral education and vocational training so as to minimize the sense of guilt and the mentality of crime in their minds.

Thus, while on one hand the security system for secure detention of prisoners is being strengthened and communication systems are being developed, on the other hand several multi-dimensional and progressive programmes for reform and rehabilitation of prisoners are being conducted. Under the present welfare policy of the Government, active measures are being taken for comprehensive health examination and treatment of prisoners, sanitation, supply of clean drinking water, training in practical work, education, special arrangement for women prisoners and improvement in the quality of life for their children aged below six years.
