Dear Hari,
It appears that you have confused between "Service Tax" and "Service Charge". Former is statutory requirement whereas latter is revenue of the security agency.
Security agencies have to run to their officers, they have to provide uniforms to their guards. There are whole lot of direct and indirect expenses. To manage these expenses, they take service charge. After deducting capital expenses and overheads, their profit comes down to just 2-3%

Dear Krishnay,
Dont club the agency service charges and service tax . Both are different, as the security is specially charging service charges for providing security service @10% and the service tax paid to Govt is as you are in position of service receiver from service provider. So in query , it is very clear that, the charges they are mentioning in the bills charges taking by agency for providing services. In simple words its profit margin they are taking from the entire amount.

Dear Team ,
Anyone give me the clarification for security service charge any act details | Which type of agency eligible for service charge

Security charges vary from 5% to 10% as the security is. It all depends how much you can negotiate since this is also a competitive industry where they also fear to loose business.
There are charges which they charge 1-5% more however you have to negotiate with them and get the final working.
