There were multiple teams from Jail No. 1 to Jail No. 8 and the ninth team from Rohini District Jail No. 6 was represented by an all-women's team. The teams had three members each and had names such as Vishwas, Aastha, Kalpana, Vaibhav, etc. Each team had fifteen people supporting them in the audience from their respective jails. The event kicked off with lighting the lamp by the Jail Superintendent. The stage was then handed over to Harneet Singh, Quizmaster of the day. He started the programme by enthralling the audiences with his witty remarks. The real show began with the elimination round to shortlist top five teams with questions such as: "Ramakant Achrekar is the guru of which famous Indian?" andÂ "Which famous Indian car is known as Mehraan in Pakistan?"
It was a nail biting finish with three teams tiedÂ at theÂ same score with the last question left on buzzer. At the end, team from Jail No. 1 emerged victorious and a tiebreaker question was asked to decide the runners up between Jail No. 4 and 8 in which team from Jail No. 4 held their nerves. The winning team was awarded Rs. 5000 each, Rs. 2500 for each runners-up, Rs. 1000 for the second runners-up and the same was deposited in their jail bank accounts.
