“In the upcoming session of the parliament, we will be introducing three other bills for discussion,” Gangwar said while addressing a Ficci webinar on the Future of Private Security Industry.
“Industry plays an important role in formulating the laws. I would urge you (industry) to share necessary changes so that all viewpoints are taken into account,” he said.
According to a Ficci statement, minister Gangwar said labour reforms is one of the top agenda items for this government.
Appreciating the role of private security services, minister Gangwar said that the industry has been serving the businesses and safeguarding assets, infrastructure and lives, which is the first and foremost requirement of any society or business to sustain and prosper.
“The private security sector has been one of the top priority sectors for my ministry in recent years. Private security, facility management, cleaning services and cash van operations are critical to both society and economy,” he noted.
The sector employs one crore individuals and connects around four crore people through the family of workers with the benefits of the government’s schemes. “A few years back, my ministry had taken a landmark decision of upgrading the classification of private security workers to ‘skilled’ and ‘highly skilled’ categories under central & state minimum wages,” it said, quoting the minister.
