Dear All,

Wish to know that -
1) Whether any statute like Maharashtra Private Security Guards (Regulation of Employment and Welfare) Act, 1981 is there in Gujrat.

2)Does any seperate authority exists for regulation of the private security guards employment ?

3)What is the minimum wages applicable to Private Security Guards in Gujrat.

Thanks & regards,

The Parliament has passed Private Security Agencies (Regulation) Act, which came into force from 2006 (I think it is October, but, exact month I cannot remember). The Joint Secretary of the Home Department of the State Government is the controlling authority as per the Act.

As far as Minimum Wages are concerned, the above said Act, in its schedule says that the Minimum Wages Act is applicable to security guards and security suprevisors, whereby these people are entitled to minimum wages notified by the State Govt. from time to time. But in some cases, it has been seen that the State Government's notification extending the benefit of minimum wages to security personnel is demanded to provide this benefit. You check up with the labour deptt. of Gujarat Govt. whether they issued notification bring the security agencies as Scheduled Employment with respect to Miimum Wages Act and if they have not done so, ask them for the same and if they fail to do so, move the high court in writ proceedings.
