New Delhi, May 4 (UNI) With ever increasing terrorist threat putting security forces under tremendous work pressure, the government can look at outsourcing some non-critical security areas to private agencies for relieving the burden.
''The government should look into bringing private players in non-critical areas like traffic management, patrolling of highways, and even first layer of security for Nuclear plants,'' Managing Director (Vision Group) Sunil Duggal told UNI.
Vision Group, a security outfit has been providing security services to various Malls, VVIP enclosures in the Twenty-20 matches at Ferozehshah Kotla.
Vision Group has recently won a top award for the most secured malls, including the Select Citywalk at Saket in South Delhi.
Mr Duggal said the government is keen to organise this industry consisting of over 18,000 organisations and more than five million people.
The estimated growth of this industry is 35 per cent and most of the foreign companies are eyeing at India as the most potential market by the year 2010.
With the capital preparing for the Commonwealth Games, security would be in huge demand in times to come, he added.
Though the government and the responsible agencies are doing their job with adequate concerns, soft targets like shopping malls, rail stations, cinema halls, and hospitals need to spend more time on the subject, he noted.
''In the modern security management, technology has been vital.
Glass laminates is the latest gift of technology, which is simple and quite effective to make ordinary glass protective from even a bomb blast and bullets, thus making living and travelling easier, safer and even economical,'' he added.
