Khordha Sub-Jail now located in the District Head Quarter is a very old Jail constructed during the British Empire. It was under the administrative control of Bihar and Odisha Jail Manual 1928. History says that Utkalmani Gopabandhu Das was detained in the Sub-Jail during the Indian war of Independent. This jail is highly sensitive located in the heart of the town not having adequate space. Now, this Jail has five male wards, one female ward, one ward for segregation and one female ward for accommodation of all type of prisoner. The total area of the Jail including its outer periphery is 1.325 Acres of land. The schedule accommodation of the Jail is 258 i.e., 243 male and 15 female. There is no infrastructure for engaging the working class prisoners (R.I). This is the Jail which is very close to the Prisons Head quarter only 25 K.M away. Now the prison population is in the rising trend which houses an average of 200 prisoners. Although in the modernization grant of Jail sum addition and alternation have been made still it is inadequate from security point of view. Now it is highly essential to relocate the Jail in the outskirt of the town having sufficient space infrastructure and work avenue to engage the prisoner undergoing rigorous imprisonment secondly the security infrastructure needs to be reviewed and adequate man power having training experience be diploid to face any contingency and adequate steps to be taken for the reformation and correction of the inmates.
