Provat Lakra started his youth career at Kalyani-based United Sports Club in the Calcutta Second Division League. Touted as a promising talent, the sturdy left-back was soon poached by the Calcutta Premier Division A side, Pathachakra. An impressive Hero I-League campaign for Gokulam Kerala FC in the 2017-18 campaign earned him a move to NorthEast United FC. He made six appearances in his debut Hero ISL campaign in 2018-19, before adding three more in the 2019-20 season for the Highlanders. Lakra had an extensive game time during the 2020-21 season where he made 11 appearances before getting sidelined due to an injury.
