Under this Modern Age, Security is the need of the hour but how many of them can afford it ? We believe security of every civilian should be upheld by the Government . Yes, we are provided with law enforcement in the shape of State Police, but they can’t undertake personal security of each person.
At JMC, we believe security is everyone birth right and should be provided to them under any circumstances. We were well aware about security being an expensive affair for everybody. This is where we join hands with Central PSU and make our dream of ‘Inexpensive security’ a reality. This gave birth to partnership which will benefit the masses with subsidized rates on personal security. Now security is no more a luxury.
