Step 1: Organise All the Necessary Documents
To expedite the licensing process, documents must be collected and sorted appropriately. A clear and legible copy of the papers about the various registrations and the promoter's and directors' details is crucial. Upon obtaining the required documents, you can complete the application online. With e-signatures, you can complete the entire process in minutes.
Step 2: Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) With Training Institute
An applicant must enter into an MoU with the training institute to provide training to its candidates on the home page of https://psara.gov.in/. An agency with training will have greater appeal, and it will be able to hire high-quality employees. The agency offers ex-servicemen a certain amount of relaxation and exemption regarding training.
Step 3: Filing of the Application
A PSARA license application (Form-I) must be filed with the respective state authority once all the necessary steps have been completed. Form-II should also be enclosed for verification of the applicant's antecedents. An affidavit must accompany Form-I in Form-III.
Step 4: Police Verifying
Verification by the police is the next step. Verification will take place after Form-I has been filed. If the agency is a partnership or a company, the respective directors will also be required to provide police verification.
Step 5: Licensing of PSARA
After verifying the application with the NOC from the police, the authority will examine the application and either grant the PSARA License in Form-IV or reject it.
Security agencies train private security guards at offices, malls, and other establishments. Before a private security agency can operate, it must obtain a PSARA license. Through Zolvit, you can avoid complex jargon and confusion.
An establishment that provides and trains security guards is regulated by the Private Security Agencies Act, 2005. Any agency that conducts these activities without obtaining the requisite license would not be permitted to operate under the act.
Therefore, the applicant must apply to the state where they reside. Licensing would be provided by the state authority. A state's application requirements would differ from another state's. For this type of license, there is no central scheme.
The PSARA license depends entirely on the state authority and how quickly it processes applications. Ideally, the application should be granted within 60 days of receiving it.
