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.

In addition, obtaining a license under this act serves as proof that the organization complies with all of the PSARA guidelines and runs in accordance with those regulations. In addition, the entity which holds a PSARA Certificate of Registration is more trustworthy in the eyes of its potential customer.
