DATA STORY : Prison Statistics in India

  • Published
    25th Jan, 2022

THREE out of every four persons, i.e. 76.1 percent of all persons held in India’s prisons are undertrials, as per the latest official data by the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) in its Prison Statistics India report for 2020.

The state of Indian prisons has only marginally improved over the last five years, and if demographic break up of inmates is any indicator, Muslims, Dalits and the tribal population is disproportionately subjected to the criminal justice system when compared to upper-class Hindu population.

Latest prison statistics released by the National Crime Information Bureau(NCRB) shows that the number of Muslims, Dalits, and tribal population incarcerated in jail is disproportionately higher than their numbers outside.
