Correctional administration, like all other wings of the criminal justice system, is inevitably facing the wrath of the pandemic globally. Owing to overcrowding in most prisons, novel challenges are staring at the stakeholders in charge of managing such institutions. India is no exception. Some states have taken measures to reduce overcrowding in order to make prisons more sustainable for social distancing processes. Nevertheless, the perplexities of prison administration remain undiluted.
