    Will the VIP prisoners also be jammed?

    they probably will bribe the officials at prison to switch those things off!!!

    Bugging would be more useful than jamming

    The best solution is to bring internal laws within the prisons where an inmate caught with such illegal objects as mobile phones will have their sentences increased by 25%. Costly jamming devices are good for lining the pockets of Ministers.

    Already delayed. Very good move. That would help to minimise the crimes more than 50%. Issue is, how the prison officials use mobiles?. They will have to come out of the premisses or roadside?.
