Haryana will no longer require private security operators to take go to the controlling authority office for a new licence or for the renewal of the existing licences under the Private Security Agencies (Regulation) Act (PSARA). All such applications by Haryana Police from November 1, 2020 are being accepted online.
Additional Director General of Police (Law and Order) Navdeep Singh Virk who is also the Controlling Authority of Haryana Private Security Agencies, said the applicants who need to apply in this regard, should visit Haryana Police website.
He said all types of approvals for issuing or renewing such licenses would be provided online. “Private security agencies can easily apply online with related documents. The license will also be issued online as soon as the verification process is completed,” he said.
The controlling authority advised all the private security agencies functioning in Haryana to strictly abide by the terms of the Private Security Agency Regulation Act. The government web portal was launched by Union Home Minister Amit Shah recently to accept and issue license applications of private security agencies online. Various states including Haryana have now been integrated into a single national portal.
