Abstract

With a highly packed population (Over 1.21 billion people) and other Related Factors such as Low police personnel-to-population ratio, low conviction rate, etc., Indians are more prone to commit crimes as well as being victims. This Research paper tries to understand and analyse the various facets of crime and criminal behavior. For this purpose, we interviewed 10 prisoners of Bhopal central jail. We used a mixed research methodology. Conversational interviewing and survey methods were used as tools of data collection and the collected data is, then, used to determine the findings. The research found that the mammoth number of criminals in India is due to influx of new criminals and not repeat offenders and further highlights the noticeable role of causative factors such as Age, Area of Residence, Marital status, Number of Children, Education, Economic Condition, Employment, etc. in compounding crime in India. The paper further evaluates the efficacy of correctional services in Indian Jail and leaves readers with a variety of new findings.
