Mann also said that he is going to take strict action against the violators of this law. "We are very strict and I have told these agencies very strictly to bring back these guards otherwise they will face legal action," Mann told this citizen journalist .
He also said that some of these agencies are also operating after getting fake licenses, which is also a great cause of worry. He requested DCP Gurgaon to conduct a high-level inquiry to investigate the issue and find those agencies and punish them.
Mann, while addressing a seminar of private security agencies, revealed that around 280 applications for deployment of armed guards are pending in his department, but “he is very careful while issuing licenses to these agencies”.
He added: "Security agencies cannot be allowed to mushroom. These agencies are entrusted with the safety of sensitive areas like malls and schools, so they have to be the best. We are apprising all concerned of new acts and ensuring that licences are issued in keeping with it. Moreover, anybody seeking a licence from our state cannot work outside and vice versa."
Dr T C Rao, chairman of the Skylark Security Services, first such agency in Gurgaon to obtain such license agreed with Mann. “Only 5-6 such agencies, operating in Gurgaon have proper licenses and training establishment units, which are also mandatory. More than 400 agencies do not have Training Establishment Units and no license," Dr Rao told this citizen journalist.
