Tihar sets up music rooms for inmates

"Introduction of music rooms has had a salutary effect on the inmates. Besides giving an outlet for those who are already trained in music or possess music talents, it provides a place where any inmate can learn music. This keeps the inmates occupied and improves their mental health and morale," Minister of State for Home Affairs Gurudas Kamat told Lok Sabha in a written reply today.

He said the central government has issued an advisory on November 8 last year "on the best prison practises to all the States/UTs with a request to consider adopting these best practises being followed by various States/UTs for efficient and effective management of prisons as also for better reformation and rehabilitation of prison inmates."
