New Delhi: Central Association of Private Security industry and Association of Private Detectives and Investigators launched their 13th Annual Security Skills and Leadership Summit at PHD Chamber of Commerce and industry (PHDCCI) . A large array of eminent dignitaries including A R Kohli, Former Governor of Mizoram; Sharad Yadav, Former Union Minister and Shahnawaz Hussain, Former Union Minister graced the event.
The two day conference was organized with the aim to discuss welfare and development issues related to the Private Security Industry.
The event was inaugurated in the traditional manner by lightening of lamps followed by welcome address by the Chairman who gave out a broad perspective of important issues being faced by the Private Security Industry (PSI) today.
Marking at the session, Lt Gen Balbir Sandhu said,”Laws, rules and regulations that were created in the first place to safeguard the interests of private security companies and their professionals won’t be of much use unless there’s no dedicated department/directorate to solely listen to their issues. A dedicated department/Directorate will surely resolve all challenges and problems faced by private security companies by creating a direct channel of communication between the security companies and the government.”
Taking the session ahead, A R Kohli, Former Governor, Mizoram said,
“In 2004, I conducted a survey regarding planning commission that resulted as a severe fall in the manpower not only in India, but around the world. We came to a calculation of around 4 million jobs abroad where Indians can apply and work rigorously. The only issues we Indians face are language, personality development, skill development which we, the authorities should make people learn at a very low costs because when Indians will approach manpower jobs in the country and around the world, it can be a benchmark for growth of services from India someday.”
