Nashik: Over 300 prisoners of Nashik Road
Central Jail appeared for a written examination on the life of
the Father of the Nation -- Mahatma Gandhi.

The examination was conducted by Mumbai-based `Sarvodaya
Mandal` and `Gandhi Research Centre` in Jalgaon. The intention
behind the move was to inspire the jail inmates with the
teachings of the Mahatma.

"The prisoners were provided with various kinds of
material on the life of Mahatma Gandhi a month back and the
exam that carried 60 marks, was conducted at the prison
yesterday," Dr Nilesh Jagdale, state convenor told reporters.

Sarvodaya Mandal has been conducting the exam in 18
central jails in Maharashtra in October every year.
