Chandigarh,
13 November, 2018

After giving its nod for setting up of ‘Open Air Jails’ in the state, Haryana government is now mulling over establishing smoking zones in jails.

This was informed by the Haryana Housing and Jail Minister Krishan Lal Panwar while addressing a press conference here.

Panwar said that a total 140 mobile phone jammers were also being installed in jails while open air jails were being set up in Karnal and Faridabad.

He said, “So far, a jail inmate was allowed for 10-minute phone calls in a week but now onward, it would be increased to 35 minutes for male inmate while 60 minutes for female inmates in jails.”

Presently, apart from three central prisons, Haryana has 19 jails where nearly 19000 prisoners are lodged.
