In order to enable a prisoner to maintain social relations with his family and community and to save evils of prisonisation, a system of releasing prisoners periodically in the form of parole, emergency parole, escort parole and furlough is implemented in Andhra Pradesh Prisons.

Parole is a conditional suspension of sentence to enable a prisoner to attend to domestic problems for a initial period of 15 days. This facility is granted to all convicted prisoners after undergoing certain period of sentence. Prisoners undergoing life imprisonment become eligible after undergoing 03 years of imprisonment, while others become eligible after one year. Reports from police and Probation Officers are called for before releasing the prisoner on parole. The period spent by prisoner on parole will have to be undergone by the prisoner and therefore it is added to the remaining sentence. Government is the authority to sanction parole.
