Delhi: Over 1,250 prisoners get remission of sentence for good conduct
Over 1,250 inmates lodged in Tihar and Rohini jails were granted remission of sentence on the occasion of 68th Independence Day.

New Delhi: Over 1,250 inmates lodged in Tihar and Rohini jails were granted remission of sentence on the occasion of 68th Independence Day.

The convicts, whose sentences have been reduced, include those who have served less than a year to more than ten years.

Exercising his powers under Delhi jail manual, newly appointed Director General of Delhi Prisons Alok Verma granted special remissions ranging from 15 days to three months to prisoners as reward for their good behaviour.

"DG, Delhi Prisons had announced the remissions on August 15. Over 1,250 convicts have been awarded remittance this time, which ranges from a 15 day relief to a maximum of three months," sources in Tihar Jail said.

"Various factors are kept in mind before granting convicts such remissions and the most important of them is that the conduct of the inmate is good," the sources said.

Inmates who have served less than a year and maintained good conduct have been granted a remittance of around 15 days, while those who have served a sentence for a period of between one year to three years have been awarded one month remittance, they added.
