In order to ensure the physical and mental wellbeing of inmates, Delhi Prisons signed an MoU with Morarji Desai National Institute of Yoga (MDNIY) on Tuesday. The MoU was signed in the presence of Sandeep Goel, DG (Prison) and Dr Ishwar V Basvaraddi, Director MDNIY at Prison Headquarters, Tihar. Other senior officials were also present at the occasion.
According to the MoU, MDNIY aims to provide Foundation Course in Yoga (1-month duration) to over 10,000 inmates of Delhi Prison, subject to their will over the coming months.
