Home Ministry has asked private security agencies not to lay off guards or deduct their salaries during the 21-day lockdown period. In a letter to the Central Association of Private Security Industry, CII, FICCI and ASSOCHAM and others, the Home Ministry said the country is facing an unprecedented situation arising out of the COVID-19 outbreak.

The letter said, this is the time for the private security industry to adopt a humane approach and protect its workers and staff members from lay-offs and consequent decrease in earnings. The letter urged the industry for empathy with its workforce, vital to its functioning, and ensure that these workers continue to be treated on duty and paid accordingly.
