Furlough is the another form of temporary release for 14 days which is granted as an incentive for good conduct.  Prisoners showing good conduct are granted furlough once in 02 years.  Prisoners who are working in Open Prisons, however, are granted furlough every year.  Since furlough is granted as an incentive, the period spent by a prisoner is treated as remission of sentence.  The Director General of Prisons is the authority for sanctioning furlough.
