Inmates of prisons will be provided vocational training.
The programme is being implemented to make prisoners useful citizens and to use their labour for the benefit of the national economy. Ten thousand prison inmates will be provided vocational training in the first phase. Those who are serving prison terms for minor offences will be selected for this purpose. The programme is being organized by the Ministries of Rehabilitation and Prison reforms and Youth Affairs and Skills. The MOU in this connection will be signed tomorrow. They will be provided training in masonry, carpentry, wiring, motor mechanism, tailoring and beauty culture.
