Bihar has never lagged in any field; it is just the portrayal that has rendered things badly. Bihar has heart full of potential in every possible field one can think of.

Every VIP, be it in the precincts of Bihar or outside it; needs a cover of security for the protection. One always wants to have the best of the lot.

The Security and Intelligence Services, commonly and popularly known as SIS, is the synonym for the security and related services in India. It holds the flagship status in the security and related fields.

You will be glad and amused to know that the SIS was established and founded in Patna, Bihar!
Ravindra Kishore Sinha is the man behind this humongous security service provider. Back in 1974, Mr. Sinha leased a small garage in Patna and started SIS. The company has now evolved as a leading company in manpower security business across Asia Pacific with 70,000 employees. He grew-up as one of seven children born in a lower-middle income family of Patna, Bihar. From childhood, he was inclined to do things on his own. In 1971 while pursuing his study in political science, he also financially supported his family by working as a part-time journalist specializing in crime and political reporting with a publication called Searchlight, where he actually discovered his entrepreneurial spirit, passion and vision. He stayed with the Bihar Regiment at a border post, as his job was to cover the Indo-Pak conflict, and made friends with the army personnel and got the idea of finding Security and Intelligence Services. In 1973 he was kicked out of the company with two month’s salary of Rs. 250 for his sympathizing Jayprakash Narayan’s political activism. Later, when he supplied some retired soldiers to his friend, who was in construction business and looking for former armymen to guard his project site, he realized the potential of the private security agencies and formed a company to handle such work for his friend who would pay him Rs. 400 per person.

Ravindra Kishore Sinha was born on 22nd September 1951 in Buxar and started the SIS. Ravindra Kishore Sinha has expanded the SIS to be the first Indian Multinational security agency after acquiring Chub Securities of Australia.
