B.   Educational Standard :-      

   

As per data compiled, majority of the prison population (around 66%) has education below class-X, thus proving the linkage between educational standard and criminality.  Lesser the literacy more the crime seems to be the trend.  The illiterates population constitute only 27.63% of the total population because of literacy programme being vigorously carried out in jails..  Most of the prisoners in this category are new comers. 

The Prison administration is taking every possible step to increase the literacy rate of the prisoners.  There are centers of National Institutes of Open Schooling and Indira Gandhi National Open University to impart education to  prisoners. More emphasis on Academic education is given in adolescents and female prisoners.  Adult education classes are being organized in every jail. 

Table-B reflects the education standards of the prisoners at the time of their admission in jail.

12.  Overcrowding of Under trials.

 

The under trial population comprises 82.02% of the total jail population.  Therefore, a major challenge before the prison administration is to take  necessary steps to reduce under trial population with the help of judiciary.  Additionally, new jails are being constructed to reduce overcrowding.   A number of steps have been taken to decongest under trial population, some of which are as under:-

  • There is timely and complete production of under trials before the court so that a trial is not prolonged because of non attendance of a prisoner.  The escort for the prisoners is being provided by Delhi Armed Police.
  • Special courts are being regularly organized at Tihar Court Complex for disposal of minor offences where the under trial is ready to confess his crime before the Magistrate who is holding the court on every third Saturday.  Care is taken so that no habitual prisoner may take advantage of special courts for which the list of prisoners is first scanned by fingerprint bureau of crime branch, Delhi Police.
  •  A list of under trials who have been granted bail by the courts but are unable to furnish surety is being compiled on weekly basis so that if the court thinks it proper the prisoner could be released on relax surely condition or on personal bond.
  • Cases of seriously sick prisoners are being taken up with trial courts for their release on bail as per law.
  • Directions have been issued to Jail Superintendents to ensure that no prisoner is unnecessarily detained by the staff because of inaccuracy of case particulars on release warrants.  In this regard, detailed guidelines have been issued by Prison Headquarters.

                            

 The below mentioned table reflect the average period of detention of under trials as on 31.12.2019.
