Private Security Sector's gift for the girl child
24-Aug-2011 | News-Press Release
The private security sector, one of the fastest growing in India, has announced a special programme for the girl child of the security personnel. This is the first of its kind welfare programme announced by any organized sector for the benefit of the girl child, thereby contributing to society.
The Central Association of Private Security Industry (CAPSI), the apex body of all private security agencies in India, has come up with a plan under which the girl child (whose parents are private security personnel) will be eligible for a financial assistance of up to Rs 1.3 lakh from schooling till marriage. This will considerably reduce the burden of the security personnel.
The welfare programme details were revealed by Kunwar Vikram Singh, Chairman, Central Association of Private Security Industry (CAPSI) at the first ever nationwide ‘Private Security Day’ celebrations held in Bangalore till late evening on Sunday, organized by the Karnataka Security Services Association (KSSA). The CAPSI will mobilize funds internal for this unique initiative.
The private security sector has mooted various programmes for the welfare of the security personnel. It has urged the Centre to extend a housing loan facility of Rs 5 lakh to each of the security personnel to be repaid over 20-year tenure.
“The United Nations has invited CAPSI to take part in a conference on evolving global standards for the private security sector. The CAPSI will replicate the same standards for the Indian private security industry,” Singh added.
“There is Armed Forces Day in India in recognition of the contributions made by the security personnel to the nation. Similarly, there is the National Fire Services Day. But the private security sector, which is one of the largest employers in the nation and the fastest growing, has no particular day dedicated in honour of the security personnel. Therefore, we decided to declare August 21 as the Private Security Day,” said Flt Lt K P Nagesh, President, KSSA.
The IT capital of the nation played host to the first ever ‘Private Security Day’ of the nation in honour of the contributions made by the private security sector.
