The rehabilitation of released convicts is one of the major objectives of good prison administration. In order to achieve these objectives, many initiatives have been taken by the state as well as from the central government in the rehabilitation and welfare of prisoners after their release. The present study has been undertaken to evaluate the current rehabilitation conditions of the released convicts from central prison, Mysore. 15 released convicts were interviewed; to collect information about their criminal background, prison life and the rehabilitation programmers offered to them during the period of punishment. From the study, it was found that, for most of them, reentry in to the society with normal life is a big challenge because of their criminal background. However, implementation of rehabilitation programs was not up to the mark. In-prison; rehabilitation programs play a key role in the state's efforts to reduce recidivism. In order to achieve good rehabilitation practice, in-prison rehabilitation programs should be designed with good principles outlined such as ensuring that programs are evidence based. Priority has to be given for aftercare services so that, once again prison reentry can be prevented.
