After the first war of independence of 1857 was crushed, many rebels were deported for life to the Andaman Islands by the British. These remote islands were considered to be a suitable place to punish the rebels. As the number of prisoners being sent to the Andaman started growing and the need for a high-security prison was felt, a jail was constructed between 1896 and 1906,
The jail building had seven wings with a central tower. Each of the seven wings had three stories upon completion. There were a total of 698 cells. Each cell was 4.5 meters x 2.7 meters in size with a ventilator located at a height of three meters. The name, "cellular jail" is derived from the solitary cells which prevented any prisoner from communicating with any other.
Two out of the seven wings of the Jail were demolished during the Japanese occupation of the Andaman islands in 1942. Another two wings of the jail were demolished after India achieved its independence. This led to protests from several former prisoners and political leaders.

  3. Dear Swapnil, this page only deals with the 1 re comm coins issued in India. If u go through this page u'll find these were issued in 1964, 1969 and next in 1985. No comm 1 re coin was issued in 1974. Of course during the period 1971 to 1974, proof sets of regular coins were issued, which were sold to collectors, who placed their orders for those sets. The proof set of 1974 only includes 1 re coin of 1974. No 1 re coin was issued in 1974, for general circulation.
