The Centre publishes Annual Statistics on the use of death penalty in India. Our first edition came out in March 2016.

Our publication covers movements in the death row population in India as well as political and legal developments in the administration of the death penalty and the criminal justice system. The statistics is compiled through a combination of processes such as data mining of court websites, media monitoring and Right to Information applications.
