From the BBC:
Authorities in the southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh are planning to set up an outsourcing unit in a jail. The unit will employ 200 educated convicts who will handle back office operations like data entry, and process and transmit information. The project will begin at Charlapally Central Jail, near the state capital Hyderabad, in the next four months.
India is a hub for the outsourcing industry, but this is the first time a unit will be set up inside a jail. The prison, with 2,100 inmates, is Andhra Pradesh's most modern with state-of-the-art facilities. The proposed outsourcing unit is a public-private partnership between the department of jails and an IT (information technology) company, Radiant Info Systems.
