In a crackdown on erratic accessibility of gates in colonies, the Haryana Urban Development Authority (Huda) administrator Praveen Kumar has asked residents' welfare associations (RWAs) in the city to strictly follow guidelines laid regarding closing and opening timing.

The administrator has directed RWAs to ensure that all entry/exit gates in sectors should remain open from 5am to 11pm during summers and from 6am to 10pm during winters.

Moreover, at least one gate manned by a security guard should remain through the night for the convenience of residents in the area.

The directive comes after the administrator's office received numerous complaints by residents over erratic closing and opening timing of iron gates in several localities.

"I have received several letters and verbal complaints from residents in this regard," Kumar said.

He also said that, in some cases, some residents with houses located near entry/exit gates in certain areas kept the gates open or closed as per their convenience.

"This is against the law and this can lead to dismantling of the gates permanently," he added. The administrator warned RWAs of strict action if any gate is found closed permanently in the absence of security guards.

According to the guidelines, RWAs should nominate two nodal officers who will be responsible for the keys. Their names should be displayed at all entrances so that residents can contact them in case there is an emergency.

"Deploying guards at all entry/exit gates is a concern amid lack of funds but we will try to follow the guidelines," said an RWA member on the condition of anonymity.
