6th September 2003, Jaipur

A state level workshop was held by the CHRI on Septmber 6, 2003 at HCM-Rajasthan Institute of Public Administration, JLN Marg, Jaipur with the support and co-operation of the Government of Rajasthan, State Human Rights Commission, State Legal Services Authority and the Department of Prisons. The workshop aimed on the following objectives:

  • Bringing together all the agencies of the Criminal Justice System together at one forum so as to develop a culture of an integrated approach to the problems of prisons that defy solution by prison department in isolation;
  • Discussing prevalent conditions of prisons with senior officers of the Department of Prisons and the controlling administrative Department of Home and Justice;
  • Highlighting the need for reviving Prison Visiting System as a potential tool for prison reforms;
  • Seeking cooperation and support of the government and of NGOs in this effort and
  • Offering services of CHRI for a sustained program of orientation training to prison visitors for making their operation and work more fruitful and result oriented.

The workshop was attended, among other participants, by decision making authorities of the state criminal justice system and the Government. Preceding this workshop, the CHRI had conducted a study of the general conditions prevailing in prisons of Rajasthan in the context of the role of prison visitors in prison reforms. The findings of this study were discussed in details in this workshop in order to draw the attention of the government and the department on some basic issues. One of the major difficulties faced by the prison administration was the paucity of security and supervisory staff to manage essential positions.

As an impact of the workshop, within 4 months, the Government of Rajasthan has appointed 250 new warders of which 33 are lady warders. 150 warders have also been promoted to supervisory position of Head warders and all of these warders and headwarders have begun their training at the Jail Training Institute, Ajmer. In addition, 29 Assistant Jailors are in the process being recruited through the Rajasthan Public Service Commission.

For the first time, we managed to ensure and encourage an active participation of prison officers along with the non-official prison visitors. We managed to develop further, the communication channel that was opened in the Gwalior training programme. This has been the most successful training programme in terms of the number of participants and the quality of engagement between visitors and officers. Click here for the report.

6 – 7 November 2000, Gwalior

CHRI held its first training programme for non–official prison visitors (NOVs) of 17 jails of the Gwalior prison circle of Madhya Pradesh. This was in keeping with our strategy of dividing the state - with approximately 120 jails - into smaller regions and holding training workshops in each. The broad objective, apart from information dissemination was to encourage NOVs to form their own associations that meet regularly and bond together to make improvements in the situation of prisoners; and who will eventually prompt official visitors, bar associations and other civil society groups to do more for the prison inmates.
