ABSTRACT

Crime problem has resulted in material costs to the mental health and criminal justice system. In India, thousands of people enter the prison and juvenile homes each year, and very limited numbers are periodically released. There is a very limited opportunity to offer a corrective experience is completely lost in our system which looks at a time is a process of punishment and has the attitude that nothing works. That is certainly not the case.  The present crime system serves as a ground to convert small-time offenders into permanent offenders. This also helps them in be a part of this crime world where limited opportunity is there for self-correction. The biggest failure of this system is limited opportunities for change in attitude and behavior in our society. There is a need to understand the present system of prison setting and rehabilitation systems.
