Introduction

PSARA License is a prerequisite before any person in India starts a private security company. The Private Security Agency is an entity involved in providing security guards and other related services as an alternative to the police at an establishment. The Private Security Agencies Regulation Act, 2005, popularly known as PSARA, governs the operation of the private security agencies.

After the PSARA (act) is enacted, it is compulsory for a security agency to obtain a license from the State Controlling Authority concerned before starting the business and, in the event of non-compliance, the law provides for severe penal consequences. When the state applies to the competent authority for a license to establish a private security agency. The PSARA License is issued to operate in or for the entire State in one or more districts of a particular State.

In addition, the entity which holds a PSARA Certificate of Registration is more trustworthy in the eyes of its potential customer.
