Prison Products On High Gear-Speeding Up With The Pace Of 100 Crores Annually
Hyderabad prison branch had made a productive revolution with its decision of making the prisoners producers of many products. It made a commercial print of crossing 100 crores in a span of two years .
Bakery items, soaps, bedsheets, towels, vegetables and furniture produced by the prisoners had made a commercial mark in the market. Presently the products selling was confined to cities but the future idea of lighting up their sale in villages was also being planned by the authorities.
DG VK Singh stated that an outlet would be planned for every village comprising the local sellers to make it a option for rural youth and women employment. He even made a statement that the lack of funds to the department was supplemented by the earnings of prisoners products sale. Ten petrol bunks were presently geared up commercially with a ransom of 8-10 crores by making the prisoners the producers. He further made a hopeful remark that they are planning to extend this to Chanchalguda Women Prison as well to make it a livelihood option for women there.
