lucky now. The UP government plans to move the prisons located in the densely populated areas outside the city into eight districts. The Prison Department has included in its action plan two to five years in place of the old jail in Badaun, Moradabad, Shahjahanpur, Jaunpur, Muzaffarnagar, Kanpur Nagar, Rampur and Varanasi.
Due to these densely populated prisons, many problems now come. In this, the prison capacity of Badaun, Shahjahanpur and Varanasi jail is two thousand each, Moradabad and Muzaffarnagar three thousand each, Kanpur city five thousand and Rampur one thousand. Being in the midst of a dense population, there is also a threat to the security of the prisons. Apart from this, the citizens also face problems. There is also the problem of overcrowding in these prisons. While the new prison is being built, the prisoner capacity will also be increased.
The Department of Prisons has also prepared a proposal to purchase land for the construction of prisons in three newly created districts of Amroha, Sambhal and Shamli. This proposal will also be implemented in the next two to five years. The government has prepared to make a decision to create 332 posts to start up the Etawah Central Jail and 402 posts to start up the old Bareilly Central Jail within 100 days. Construction of new prisons will also start in Amethi, Bhadohi, Mahoba and Hathras. Barracks and individual rooms are also being built to deal with the problem of overcrowding. The department has set a goal of creating 489 captive capacity in 100 days.
