The prison population as on 31.12.2015 has increased by 2.40% in comparison to the population as on 31.12.2014.   The increase in this year population is because of increase in undertrial population by (6.96%).  A decrease of 11.76% in convict population has been observed in comparison to last year population. 

 

       ●   In year 2014, occupancy of prisons vis-à-vis sanctioned capacity was 222% whereas in the year 2015 an occupancy of 227% was observed.

6.    DEMOGRAPHIC DETAILS OF PRISONERS:-


Prison administration compiles demographic details of the prisoners on the basis of information supplied by them at the time of their admission into the jail.   


A.           Marital Status :-

As per figures available married prisoners constitute 54.16% of total male population whereas unmarried form 48.84%.  In the female prisoner 91.02% of female population were married and 8.98% were unmarried.  The population wise marital status is shown below:-

B.   Educational Standard :-         

As per data compiled, majority of the prison population (around 64%) 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 21.27% 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 Undertrials.

The undertrial population comprises 76.70% of the total jail population.  Therefore, a major challenge before the prison administration is to take  necessary steps to reduce undertrial population with the help of judiciary.  Additionally, new jails are being constructed to reduce overcrowding.   A number of steps have been taken to decongest undertrial population, some of which are as under:-

  • There is timely and complete production of undertrials 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 undertrial 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 undertrials 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 undertrials as on 31.12.2015.
