According to the latest available figures, jails across India house only 32 per cent
convicts. The remaining 67 per cent are people awaiting trial. The Rajasthan
figures mirror the all-India ones or in other words for every one convicted prisoner
there are two awaiting trial. The majority of undertrials in Rajasthan are between
eighteen and thirty years.

Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative
The Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative (CHRI)International Advisory Commission:Executive Committee (India):Executive Committee (Ghana):Executive Committee (UK):is an independent, non-partisan, internationalnon-governmental organisation, mandated to ensure the practical realisation of human rights inthe countries of the Commonwealth. In 1987, several Commonwealth professional associationsfounded CHRI. They believed that while the Commonwealth provided member countries a sharedset of values and legal principles from which to work, and provided a forum within which to promotehuman rights, there was little focus on the issues of human rights within the Commonwealth.CHRI’s objectives are to promote awareness of and adherence to the Commonwealth HararePrinciples, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other internationally recognised humanrights instruments, as well as domestic instruments supporting human rights in Commonwealthmember states.Through its reports and periodic investigations, CHRI continually draws attention to progress andsetbacks to human rights in Commonwealth countries. In advocating for approaches and measures toprevent human rights abuses, CHRI addresses the Commonwealth Secretariat, membergovernments and civil society associations. Through its public education programmes, policydialogues, comparative research, advocacy and networking, CHRI's approach throughout is to act asa catalyst around its priority issues.The nature of CHRI's sponsoring organisations allows for a national presence and an internationalnetwork.* These professionals can steer public policy by incorporating human rights norms intotheir own work and act as a conduit to disseminate human rights information, standards andpractices. These groups also bring local knowledge, can access policymakers, highlight issues andact in concert to promote human rights.CHRI is based in New Delhi, India, and has offices in London, UK, and Accra, Ghana.Sam Okudzeto ChairpersonAlison Duxbury, B.
