PSARA License

What is PSARA License

PSARA License is a mandatory document for those who are running private security agencies. Also called the Private Security Agency License, it’s governed under the Ministry of Home Affairs. Without this license, the private security agency cannot operate. If they do, they would have to face being penalized by the ministry

Business ventures have increased their number of establishments, and thus, the need for personnel to secure them has also increased. However, there is a disparity. While there are many establishments that need security, they are not many who can provide it. Answering to this disparity, Honourable Home Minister Amit Shah launched the PSARA or Private Security Agencies Bill via which anyone who wants to start a security company can get the PSARA License.
