Recently, the Supreme Court formed a committee on prison reforms headed by former Supreme Court judge, Justice Amitava Roy, to review the entire range of reforms to the prison system.
However, in the past the Justice A.N. Mulla committee as well as the Justice Krishna Iyer committee on women prisoners (both in the 1980s) was also established on the same context. There is no denial that there is some reforms have taken place, but there is a lot more could be done since even the basic human rights have not been received by the prisoners.
