Jail Radio To Be Started In District Jail Jhajjhar

Three inmates lodged in District Jail Jhajjar have been chosen as Radio Jockeys for the soon-to-be-launched prison radio. With one inmate being a teacher, the other one is a tailor in the jail and the third was on a look-out for some constructive engagement. Two inmates are convicts while the third is an undertrial. A set of singers have also been chosen separately for creating music for the jail radio. The auditions were conducted by Dr. Vartika Nanda, prison reformer and the Founder of Tinka Tinka Foundation, which is working for the upliftment of inmates. Prison Radio in Haryana is the brainchild of Vartika Nanda.  

Training to be imparted to the inmates

There are a total of 19 jails in Haryana, out of which radio has already been launched in District jails Faridabad and Panipat and also in Central jail Ambala under Phase I of the project.
