'Freedom Bazar' for Indian prisoners
Posted on: 05-10-2015 , 11:18:AM | DY365 Bureau

Oct 5, 2015- 'Freedom Bazar' has raised the hopes of many for becoming self-dependent, those who are still locked inside cells with iron bars in various prisons of the nation.

This after the prisoners in Tamil Nadu generated the highest income among all prisons in India. National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) data shows that in 2014, Tamil Nadu prisons generated Rs 36.97 crore in gross earnings – this was the highest in India among all prisons. Kerala stands second with Rs 21.43 crore and Bihar third with Rs 15.74 crore.
All the items are sold under a brand name called 'Freedom Bazaar'. The prisoners are also enrolled in vocational training programmes. In 2014, more than 3000 prisoners were part of programmes like weaving and agriculture. This also ensures that there is rehabilitation of prisoners in the long-term.
There are many products that the prisoners make, ranging from bakery goods to leather items to handicrafts and clothing. During the recent Global Investors' meet all these items were showcased.
