Private Security Agencies are those organisations involved in providing security services including training of security guards. The operation of private security agencies are governed by The Private Security Agencies Regulation Act, 2005 in short called as‘ PSARA’. With increasing concerns about crime and terrorism, the demand for private security services is increasing steadily among the public to protect themselves against different types of crime. This has led to increases in Private Security Agencies. In order to safeguard against antisocial/antinational elements entering into this business of Private security service, the government has regulated the formation and operation of these agencies through an act called Private Security Agencies Regulation Act, 2005 as it is a matter of national security. Security is a matter of the concurrent list of Constitution thus the concerned state government, in which private security agency is located and providing its services, is empowered to regulate their affairs and may formulate rules in respect of it. No person or private security agency can start a business or provide security guard without holding a PSARA license under the PSARA .
