    More about Puzhal Central Jail, Chennai and Historical Information

    Puzhal Central Jail is located in Chennai and covers an area of about 23 kilometres. It came into function in 2006, replacing the previous Chennai Central Prison. 

    The plan of constructing the prison came into effect in the early 2000s, with Puzhal being the final destination to house the prison because of its availability of large parcels of government-owned lands. The prison was constructed in less than three years with an overall budget of ₹1,770 million. Being among one of the largest penitentiaries in India, Puzhal Central Prison, covering an area of 212 acres, comprises three complex buildings.

    The prison accommodates various facilities including dormitories, lavatories with doors, meditation hall, library, amphitheatre, auditorium, jail court with the video-conferencing facility, mechanized kitchens, high-security blocks with exclusive kitchen and hospital, gym, canteen, public music system, rehabilitation block, and separate gallows for men and women prisoners.
