Lucknow: Ensuring self-reliance of prison inmates for them to lead a respectful living, the Yogi Adityanath government is providing training in block printing under the state’s flagship 'One District One Product' (ODOP) scheme in Fatehgarh jail.

As a part of the training, the jail inmates are being trained to create 'Ramnami Patkas', 'dupattas' and 'gamchas’. They are also being trained to produce Om Namah Shivay and Radhe-Radhe printed on the scarves and stoles.

The products will be supplied for sale at all the religious places of the state including Ayodhya, Varanasi, Mathura and Chitrakoot.

The jail administration will distribute 10 per cent of the income to the inmates and will also be giving the fixed remuneration to the prisoners for making the products. The inmates will also be provided employment through Rozgar Melas.

DG Prison Administration and Reform Anand Kumar on Sunday said under the ODOP scheme block printing training is being imparted to female and male inmates of Fatehgarh Jail, in which they are preparing patkas, dupattas and gamchas.

"The products then will be sent for sale to other religious places in the state including Ayodhya, Mathura, Varanasi and Chitrakoot. Along with this, they will also be sold at the Ramnagariya fair to be held on the banks of the Ganga in Farrukhabad," he said.

He said 12 female prisoners of Fatehgarh are being trained by ITI while 35 male prisoners are being trained by Gautam Buddha Development Society Institute. "There are about 1050 male prisoners out of which 35 prisoners are being trained in the first phase," he said.

The DG said as soon as the training of the first phase prisoners is completed, training will be imparted to other prisoners in a phased manner. "After the inmates get the training, they will be given certificates. At the same time, employment will also be provided to the prisoners through Rozgar melas by ITI," he said. (UNI)
