Jail On Rent

We have heard about renting a cab, a drivers, a room and much more. But how about renting a jail.

Yes you have read it correct…you can now get a first hand experience of the prison life by paying just INR 500 for 24 hrs.

The 220-year-old District Central Jail at Sangareddy, which has now been converted into a museum, offers a 24-hour confinement under an innovative initiative called “Feel the Jail” launched by the Prisons department for people who want to spend time behind the bars and experience the feeling of being under detention.

During the stay, the inmates will be provided with a prison uniform made of khadi, a steel meal plate and glass, a mug besides washing soap, bathing soap, bedding and other facilities as per state prison manual, in addition to a fan.There is no work schedule for visiting ‘prisoners’ but they have to clean their barracks and are free to plant saplings during their stay.

The objective behind this initiative is to make people understand how it feels to be in a prison environment and would send a strong message of avoiding the jail.
