Security Guarding Service Standards
Can local circles and bureau of indian standards please make standards for security guard companies. please do a bottoms up exercise.
i feel problem with indian standards is that the govt is not that knowledgeable about issues of a sector so they always just rely on industry. Industry experts instead of going at the root of a need of a safe efficient product propose and demand standards according to the product they are having.
it cannot be done this way going forward. If so better to shut bis and have a body like asci for standards. which will mean that businesses can do whatever they want. more
In India Security Guard are not properly educated and trained.Raw personnel from U P and Bihar will land in to big cities and will do security work.This needs skill development and proper training and should be able to deal with any eventuality.Probably this area is not being given its due importance. more
Does security comes under the purview of the BIS? Please ascertain first! more
Yes, it is an area where the sole loosers are the personnel employed as guards. The prime employer wants more profit and the secondary employer wants to spend less. Both flout the regulations. If you want better standards, then the payments have to match. Properly trained and young persons would require standard compensation including the statutory benefits. But then who wants to comply with all these? more
Bureau of Indian standards does not prepare standards for whatever we desire, but for specific purposed as stipulated in the Act, under which it is established. Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS), agency of the Indian government established in 1987 to devise uniform standards of quality for broad categories of manufactured and agricultural goods, to perform product testing, and to license the use of an official mark to indicate that a product has been certified as conforming to BIS standards more
The standard is very low compared to other countries needs urgent redressal more
