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, 10 District Jails, 1 Special Jail & 1 Sub Jail. Against a lodgement capacity of 3629 inmates, the Department is accommodating more than 5300 inmates. Besides, the Department has 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 progressive correctional programmes and develop futuristic infrastructure in Jails. Our aim is to provide living conditions in Prisons compatible to human dignity & comparable to the best in the country with a focus on accommodation, diet, sanitation, hygiene & medical facilities.
