Sudhir Chowdhary: Checkposts of a different kind: Tech simplifies life in gated communities
24/06/2021 – 11:27
Community management app MyGate ensures authorising entry of delivery executives, paying maintenance bills, etc., all at a single click for more than 20,000 housing societies
“However, while major cities remain the focus, even new gated communities in smaller cities like Siliguri, Kolhapur and Dehradun have had the platform installed,” says Kumar.
The pandemic has dramatically rewired behaviour within housing societies. Households want to know that all visitors are running a normal temperature; they want to minimise or eliminate trips outside their community, which means they not only expect deliveries of goods but even vaccinations are expected to arrive at the community gates; they want everything to go digital, be it society payments, society announcements, celebrations or conversations. All of these also place huge responsibility on the shoulders of Resident Welfare Associations (RWAs).
