Welcome to the website of the Prison Department, J&K.

The Jammu & Kashmir Prisons Department is entrusted with the responsibility of providing correctional services to the inmates in an environment conducive for reformation.

At present there are 14 functional prisons which include 2 Central Jails, 9 District Jails, 1 Special Jail & 2 Sub Jails. Jail at Poonch is under construction which will accommodate 200 inmates. Against a lodgement capacity of 2830 inmates, the Department is accommodating more than 3600 inmates. Besides, the Department has recently inaugurated its training centre- Institute of Correctional Services at Mishriwala which provides training related to Prison Management (Basic Training & Refreshers).

The Prison Department has been able to implement correctional programmes which include educational & vocational trainings, recreational programmes, psychiatric consultation etc. Prison manufactured products are put to sale at Departments Retail outlet ‘Sudhar Bikri Kendra’ at Jammu & various exhibitions/melas. Wages as fixed by the Govt. go to the prisoners account directly, thereby enabling them to earn livelihood while serving the sentence. Convicted prisoners are prematurely released on Independence Day & Republic Day after approval of competent authority.

The Department endeavours to adopt modern technology for security & surveillance, introduce a progressive correctional programmes and develop futuristic infrastructure in Jails.
