Views: 555

The Uttaranchal government in India has installed computerised technology in jails to serve two purposes: to strengthen security and to provide training to undertrials who can look forward to new life when they leave prison.
Though it demonstrates an attempt to move with the times there is a fear of techno-savvy criminals posing a threat to jail administration. Close-circuit televisions will enable round the clock vigil inside the Hardwar and DehraDun jails while high-power jammers are installed at main gates to allow staff to control an area of 50 metres around jail premises.
