Each man is born free it's his work or action which makes him a crook. Although the prisoner is imprisoned due to the fact of his own misdeed but he deserves to get a trustworthy, secure and healthful lifestyles.


The Forbidden Truth
the overall society has a false suggestion concerning the prisons that the inmates are hazardous criminals and are a danger to the society. They will have to stay inside the jail with just general rights like meals, garb, life and liberty. However alas, little persons know that the inmates are living a very gloomy lifestyles, “The slaves had been boys between ten and eighteen, employed as ‘helpers’, and there have been ratings of them. They cooked, washed utensils, cleaned rooms, fetched water and did a lot again-breaking labour to ‘aid’ those who have been paid to do these chores.”[1], used to be said by using Kuldip Nayar, who spend a while in Tihar jail, for the duration of the time when the emergency used to be invoked.


Sexual harassment of Women prisoners 
ladies prisoners are tortured most, they aren't most effective crushed up with the aid of the penal complex authorities, but are also sexually burdened no longer simplest by means of the authorities but many times additionally with the aid of the fellow prisoners, and hardly ever any step is taken toward their protection. An incident occurred in Khetri detention center, Rajasthan, the place two jailers bailed out a girl and kept her for every week to rape her day-to-day. The All Bengal ladies’s association’s record on females prisoners in Presidency penitentiary, Calcutta, in 1974 highlights an identical incidents.[2]
In Elisaar detention center, Meena had arrived in the fearful state, she was once unable to stroll, her rectum and the vaginal discipline was once torn and was bleeding, she grew to be lunatic, as she had been kept in police custody for twenty-two days after her arrest and was brutally being raped by means of 5 - 6 policemen. She used to be from a village in Nepal, and the irony was once she was once sentenced a ‘simple imprisonment’ for seven days, and this was once what she had confronted. There were many more incidents where sexual harassment of women prisoners had been reported.


Class wise Treatment
A man or woman whether or not a free man, or a prisoner, have the proper to healthful meals, but the situation of food in these prisons is pathetic. The food first-class of the reformatory has continually been a matter of disappointment; there is a tremendous improvement required on this regard. The development in this subject is being handled via govt, however instead, the federal government is delivering discriminatory offerings that, the persons could experience advantage only if they have the potential to pay for the additional improvement.
The category-A prisoners are provided with the precise advantages like, they would pay for his or her possess expenditure via depositing  a unique amount constant by using the federal government for having fun with exact offerings like- morning tea, newspaper, pillow, 3 times non-vegetarian meals in every week and if they're vegetarian they're going to be served ghee, dal, and buttermilk.


Natural Death
The environment in prison is very unhygienic. Such unhygienic and unclean environment results in a upward push in many ailments and infections, and no longer much awareness is paid to the scientific aids that will have to be given to these prisoners.
Every 12 months, a number of prisoners die in the jail in view that of infections which can be regularly minor and curable. In Seraikela penitentiary which has a ability of eighty two and which was being utilized to hold four hundred to 800 prisoner, “143 prisoners, probably Adivasi underneath-trials handed on somewhere round 1973 and 1975”. Bhabani Shanker Hoota, a political dissident, who invest some energy in Rourkela certain penitentiary, Orissa, Emergency, lets us know of two loss of life in legal guardianship “given that of the joined negligence of general practitioner’s facility and correctional facility staff.” identical are the complaints from primary reformatory, Jaipur. Here, a man of 22, was once despatched from Karoli to important prison, Jaipur “for cure”. His right arm was once cracked. Was once the bone uncovered, as good as around an inch of it was once bulging out in addition, what was more terrible, he had been in that state for greater than 20 days when I met him. He had been travelling the prison professional frequently, and the specialist obediently related a yellow medicine and dressed it. Why was once he no longer sent to the town medication facility? “No police watchman to go with him to the general practitioner’s facility,” was once the answer. (then again, three days after my talk over with he was once despatched to the doctor’s facility and was once labored upon.) In Karnataka, Snehlata Reddy, a exact ceaseless bronchial asthma sufferer, was once denied reputable restorative treatment. She was once declined parole regardless of the professional’s concept and passed away with-in every week of her discharge.


The Positive Side
The jail just isn't a situation which is to be in comparison with hell; it has some leisure hobbies also just like the rehabs, which employs the inmates so that the life in prison does now not stops. As soon as the prisoners leave the prison, they are used to working, and they even have some amount of money with them which help them to restart their lives. That is precious for the persons who are giving imprisonment phrases for long phrases. These persons traditionally face desertion from their family; they must restart their lives from ground zero degree so mainly for these individuals IGNOU guides are offered to them.
How so ever heinous crime ought to had been dedicated by using that person, he's being given an opportunity for the educational facilities. The essential guides which can be being furnished are BA, MA, and MBA and many others. And other publish-commencement publications. In many jails with the intention to provide full-fledged laptop coaching vocational training can be furnished.
In lots of locations, training for carpentry and fabric portray can also be supplied. Additionally in many jails ladies empowerment by means of coaching them in weaving, making toys, stitching and making embroidery objects. Wage incomes and gratuity schemes and incentives are additionally used to lessen the psychological burden on the convicts. Lately, the government of Himachal Pradesh had lifted ban on wearing Gandhi cap in jails. Quite a lot of seminars are prepared by penitentiary authorities to enlighten the prisoners on their legal rights, wellness and sanitation issues, HIV/AIDS and disorders of mental well being, juveniles, minorities and steps to reduce the violence in prisons.


Conclusion
The prisons in India wants to be well established with new and increased legal guidelines which provide the prisoners a greater lifestyles for the period of their penal complex time. Additionally, there must be a primary committee which should be certain that the inmates are handled good via the policemen, and every supposed accused will have to be made to peer the magistrate within the stipulated 24 hours. Individually the legal guidelines exists however the implementation needs to be taken care off. They will have to receive the fundamental rights essential for human existence.
