How to find a background running process

I am trying to create an app that will check if a particular process is running in the background and if needed will kill the process.

Can someone please help me with finding the list of a background process running on my system (phone)

Hi @Shrawan_Singh Welcome
I am little confused between background app and background service/process.
Can you solve my doubt?
