Dear All,

This post is relates to Security Guard board Exemption.

We had been deployed 4 security guards hired from one Private Agency. We, as principal employer are satisfied with the services as committed, part of statutory compliance & all documentation are well maintained by Agency. Only the point was "EXEMPTION".

Recently, Two inspectors from Security Guard Board has visited our office for inspection. When we met inspectors, they pointed out that exemption is needed even if there are 4 security guards deployed, which your private agency has not been fulfilled & levy has not been paid by their end. They want Clarification,else they will raise notice to Our company.

Last year, in the same case of 4 guard, it had advised to Private Agency from one of Security Guard Board Inspector that " for opting Exemption, minimum 20 guards has to be deployed in one unit.Further,Private Agency has not initiated the consent letter for opting exemption because of less number of Security guards.

In Fact,There is no scope for 20 Guards in our small unit.

What has to be done in this case?

Don't you think this is misleading?

What is real situation? From Whom ,we get clear cut idea. Can we get notification of Security Guard Board?

This is under the Maharashtra guard board act.
It was the first state to put regulations for security guards.
Anyone employing security guards is required to hire directly, permanent employees or hire from the guard board.
If contract security is used, they must have an exemption from the guard board and must give equal or better terms to the employees. The exemptions are specific to each factory, and the names of security guards are also specified in the notification.
The act is responsible for improvement of security guard salaries from below subsistence to decent in Maharashtra and was model for the Private Security Agency Regulation Act of the Center made later.

Dear Shirke Sir,
We have informed to handle this matter to our Security Agency only and they have 'managed' the matter.
But as a principal employer, should we start the exemption procedure through Security contractor as we have 4 security Guards?
