12 prisoners to sit for matric exam.

Berhampur: Carrying the jail reforms a step forward, the Berhampur jail authorities allowed 12 convicts to sit for the High School Certificate examination beginning from tomorrow. Last year seven inmates of the jail appeared for exam and came out successful.

Berhampur`s Mandal prison which is home to many serious convicts has been witnessing a lot of reform activities in the past few years.
In a bid to correct themselves and join the mainstream — these prisoners have showed their readiness to fight any blocks on their way. Considering so much enthusiasm among the jail inmates, many NGOs have extended their help. These NGOs are not only providing books and notebooks to them but providing them with their tuition fees and other necessary help. All this shows how we are ready for self-correction and social change.
