Good News For Life Convicts

jail Life convicts with good conduct may be released shortly. The issue is pending with the state Home department for a long time. Certain types of convicts who committed the offense on an impulse but repented later were released in 2011. But, after that, no fresh life convicts with good conduct were released. Some more ‘good’ life convicts were to be released in August 2014 soon after the formation of the Telangana state but it was not possible due to certain issues pending with the Supreme Court. Now the line is clear and the state government issued certain guidelines. But they could not be released due to the election code of GHMC. Once the elections are over, they may be released. At present there are 1800 life convicts in the state. 300 of them are life convicts with good conduct who meet the guide lines of the state Home department. The date of their release is yet to be announced.
