Aizawl: IGNOU would impart free education to
inmates of the prisons in Mizoram from next academic session,
the open university said in a statement here today.

"The Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) would
also provide free textbooks to the students in jail.

"Experts in different subjects would be sent for
counselling classes inside the jails from time to time," the

IGNOU had established a study centre at Central Jail near

the prison for a few years.
