District Jail Gautambudh Nagar, Noida
Mr. Vikram Singh Yadav, is presently working in District Jail Gautambudh Nagar (Noida) in the capacity of Deputy Jailor.
Mr Singh has a postgraduate degree in Physics. He had been selected through U.P.P.C.S examination 2000 conducted by U.P Public Service Commission. He has worked in various capacities in prison administration ranging from administrative to reformative activities. His first posting was at Central Jail, Agra. His senior officers in Central Jail, Agra entrusted to him the task of administering and running of “Bandi Kalyankari Sahkari Samiti”. At that time “Bandi Kalyankari Sahkari Samiti” was newly born society and it was not working effectively. He took this responsibility as a challenge. He has always had a strong belief that work itself is itself a reformative activity for human beings. Work gives enjoyment to human beings. This belief fits perfectly inside the prison. Therefore with the help of his senior officials, Yadav motivated the inmates to engage themselves in stitching and furniture work inside the prison itself. He decided to sell the products in the market, so that the number of prisoners involved in work activity could be increased. He then contacted Khadi Shops of Agra and a tie-up between the “Bandi Kalyankari Sahkari Samiti” and Khadi Gram Udyog was estabilished .
Soon approximately 50 Convict Prisoners were engaged in stitching Khadi Shirts and Trousers, Kurta and Pyjama. Similarly furniture like Dinning table, Double bed, Almira, Sofa-Sets were manufactured by the prisoners and supplied these products to Government Departments and commercial markets.
At present he is actively involved in various prisoner reform programs like education, sports and skill development etc. He has also been successful in ensuring that the prisoners’ data is uploaded online on National Portal of Prisons. To make the visit transparaent, speedy and easy, District Jail GautambudhNagar (Noida) is the first Jail in U.P to facilitate online submission of visit pass/application/booking.
