District Jail Panipat has started its Tinka Tinka Prison library to cater to the educational needs of almost 1000 inmates lodged in this jail. This library has been designed specifically for women inmates who will be coming back to the jail post Covid-19. They have been sent to Karnal jail due to the pandemic.
The library was launched by the CJM cum Secretary District Legal Services Authority Shri Amit Sharma, Superintendent of the Jail Shri Devi Dayal and Founder of Tinka Tinka Dr. Vartika Nanda. This prison library is a joint initiative of Tinka Tinka Foundation and Deora Seva Nidhi, Kolkata. This is the first prison library started by the Foundation.
Speaking on the occasion Shri Amit Sharma said that this library will pave way to bring legal literacy and awareness in inmates. Shri Devi Dayal said that this initiative has brought immense change in the attitude of inmates. They are taking keen interest in jail radio and library will further add to the reformation process….
