The oldest penal institution is actually the jail which is commonly known as prison in the countries. As a democratic and socialist Nation, it is expected to protect the basic rights of prisoners. Human rights jurisprudence advocates that no crime should be punished in a cruel, degrading or inhuman manner. On the contrary, it is held that any punishment that amounts to cruel, degrading or inhuman should be treated as an offence by itself. This article talks about such good changes. This article also deals with international laws. This article includes international Human rights laws like the UN charter and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. For making it more rational and practical, the authors added the role of the judiciary in preventing the right of prisoner’s rights. This article also includes some constitutional provisions as well as some important case laws to enhance the structure and standard of the article. The right to prisoners also has been mentioned in this article.
