Amnesty International India report
- While the system struggles with an occupancy rate of 114%, there has been no change to ensure legal safeguards to prevent excessive pre-trial detention.
- The report shows that 29% of undertrials had no formal training and were illiterate.
- According to the report, between September 2014 and February 2015, there were over 1.10 lakh instances of undertrials not being produced in courts for hearings.
- While there is a shortage of personnel to escort undertrials, this figure includes those who were not produced even through video-conferencing.
