Karachi Central Jail unveils online meetings for inmates and families


Karachi Central Jail has embarked on a revolutionary transformation of its operations by implementing an innovative online system to streamline the scheduling of meetings between inmates and their families. The administration has introduced a user-friendly mobile application, facilitating seamless connections between families and prisoners.

In a recent development, the jail has incorporated a cutting-edge video link system for prisoner court appearances, aiming to enhance the efficiency of legal proceedings within the prison environment.

To further facilitate family visits, Central Jail Karachi now provides an online appointment booking system through its dedicated mobile application. This progressive approach not only simplifies the scheduling process but also accommodates families from distant locations, eliminating congestion and long waiting times.

Misbahuddin, the Assistant Superintendent Jail, highlighted the collaborative effort involved in this initiative, which included the participation of the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Agency of the United States. The inauguration of the online appointment project was officiated by Sindh Interior Minister, Brig (retd) Haris Nawaz, who expressed gratitude for the much-needed reform. He acknowledged the prolonged waiting periods endured by prisoners’ families, emphasizing the project’s role in alleviating the hardships they often face, waiting for 4 to 5 hours.

To ensure the guidance and verification of meeting attendees, five strategically placed booths near the jail’s main gate have been designated for this purpose. This strategic placement aims to enhance security and streamline the verification process for all scheduled meetings.

The introduction of this advanced online system represents a significant stride towards modernizing the prison experience, making it more accessible and convenient for both inmates and their families. The inauguration of this transformative project by the Sindh Interior Minister underscores a commitment to improving the overall conditions and processes within the Karachi Central Jail.
