India is a country with the highest number of population in the whole world, a population which is only growing with time. With such a growing population, there has also been an obvious increase in the crime rate of the country. What we need to understand by this is that India’s law and order system is tedious and not organised for such a heavily populated nation, and with an increase in the crime rate there is also an increase in the number of criminals, but since the court procedures are a very lengthy process and it can take up years for a case to be settled, the prisons are getting crammed up with such prisoners and the conditions in the jails are only getting worse. A prison is a place where people who have committed offences are sent in order to be reformed and made to understand the consequences of their actions. A jail or a prison does not need to be a place where a person thinks that once they enter there, it will be the end of their lives, instead, it should be a place where people can trust themselves to be in so that when they come out of there, they will be a better person. Prison reforms and ensuring the security of prisoners are vital aspects of any just and equitable society. In India, however, the ground reality for prisoners is quite different from what it should be. There have been numerous incidents of crimes within the prisons which has been due to negligence and mismanagement of the appropriate authorities. The need for comprehensive prison reforms and improving prisoner security has been a long-standing concern in the country. This article delves into the key issues, challenges, and potential solutions in the perspective of the prisons in India.
