Industries established in the prisons were 25 to 30 years old and they are out dated. There is a need to upgrade these industries by means of replacing old machineries with the latest one and also train the prisoners in the current vocational trades. Every year there will be a meager budget for upgradation of prison industries and because of this factor and also with no instructors in the concerned industry some of the industries have came to halt.

Government and Quasi Government Industrial Corporations have been requested to assist in improving the conditions and adopting new techniques / methods in Soap and Phenyl manufacturing, footwear making, weaving etc..
