A word with the Reader...



Prison is a vital arm of the Criminal Administration System. The Personnel of the Prison Department have the onerous task of protecting the Society from those incarcerated by due process of law.

The Penal system in the modern times has undergone several changes and the focus is now on Reformation and Rehabilitation and not retribution and punishment.
