The company has a staff strength comprising 300 guards and about twenty people as its office staff. Says Chahar, “we have recorded an employee retention of about 85 percent since the past five years. We also provide ESI, PF, welfare funds, bonus and free uniforms to guards.” This enterprising chieftan believes “in working with honesty, and providing employment and re-employment opportunities for people from both rural and urban areas.” Also, the entire scorecard of the success of the company also goes to “teamwork, and working with principles,” is what Chahar strongly opines. He also works with a dedicated focus and concentration in his tasks and routine. The vision for the future includes starting a new project in Geotech Gaur City, Noida.
