Bihar to computerise jailsJune 28th, 2012 - 8:00 pm ICT by IANS
Patna, June 28 (IANS) Bihar has roped in the National Informatics Centre(NIC) to develop a software to computerise all prisons.
“NIC is developing a software for the computerization of prisons and to upload all data. It will be in our hands within six months,” Inspector General of Police (Prisons) Anand Kishore said here.
The software will be launched at the Beur Jail here as a pilot project followed by 54 other jails in the state, Kishore told IANS.
According to him, all important information about prisoners including their crime history, date of entry into prison, date of production in the court and the wages earned in jail would be fed into the computers.
A record of visitors to jails would be maintained. All the visitors would have to get their photographs clicked and fingerprints scanned.
“It would help in detecting crime in a big way as many people with criminal history reportedly visit jails to meet inmates,” he said.
