4. TRENDS OF OVERCROWDING
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--vis sanctioned capacity was 222% whereas

in the year 2015 an occupancy of 227% was observed.

The trend of overcrowding of Delhi Prisons during the preceding 10 years is depicted in the

The national average of undertrial prisoners in Indian jails was 67.6* and in Delhi the
percentage of undertrial population was 76.70%, much above the national average.

The national average of convicts in Indian jails was around 31.4%* whereas in Delhi
Jails it was 22.86% thus below the national average.

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:-
TABLE A
% age Population

Male Female

Married 54.16 91.02

Un-married 48.84 8.98

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.
Table B. Male % Female %

1. Illiterate 20.70 38.69

2. below class X 43.19 32.64

3. Class X & above but below graduation 28.65 19.34

4. Graduate 5.62 6.74

5. Post-graduate 1.02 2.24

6. Holding Technical
0.82 0.35
Degree/Diploma etc.

The low percentage of illiterates is only because of adult literacy programme (Padho Aur Padhao) being

vigorously pursued in all jails.

C. Domicile :-
Delhi being a cosmopolitan city, there is mixture of prisoners from Delhi and outside Delhi. The following were the salient

TOTAL 13604 579 100 100

The majority segment of prisoners which is around 84%, comes from the lower income strata of society where the monthly
income does not exceed Rs.8000/- p.m. thus establishing the linkage between poverty and criminality.

Around 49% of the prison population comprises of people who earn an annual income below Rs.50,000/- at the time of their
arrest.

undertrials. From above table we can establish that in IPC case
Murder and Kidnapping & Abduction shows positive variation of 13.43% and 0.69 respectively thereby showing higher
conviction in these cases where as Thefts, Rape and Attempt to Commit Murder shows a negative variation of 10.01%, 1.62% &
1.15% respectively thereby showing less convictions in these cases. In other cases variation is less than 1%.

In Local & Special Law cases

N.D.P.S. cases and Prevention of Corruption shows a positive variation of 1.91% and 1.13% respectively thus showing more
convictions whereas Arms and Excise shows a negative variation of 1.68% & 0.87% respectively thereby showing less

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.
