Residents of Shaktikunj complex, which is in B block of Sector 62, have adopted stringent measures to ensure security of the housing complex.
Built in 2002, it is one of the oldest societies in the area, and was set up before the educational institutions and multinational firms in its surroundings.
A total of 800 residents live in 220 flats of Shaktikunj complex, which is guarded round-the-clock by security guards and close circuit television (CCTV) cameras. The complex also has a beautiful park and footpath inside the campus, which is a result of the RWAs efforts.
“I have been the RWA president for the last three years and during my tenure, we have introduced various security measures to curb petty incidents of crime in our locality,” CS Rai, president of RWA, said.
The security measures include providing special vehicle passes for residents, identity cards for household helps and also for those providing services such as washing and ironing clothes.
“Household helps and those ironing clothes for Shaktikunj residents have been issued an ID card with a picture. This makes it easy for security guards to keep a tab on the entry of people in our locality,” Jeetendra Kumar of Shaktikunj said.
Pratibha, a resident, said, “It feels safe when we enter our complex. We regularly read about crimes in various parts of the city. Due to increased security in our complex, our children can play outdoors without fear.”
A gate pass has also been issued for every four-wheeler and two-wheeler in the complex, by which the security guards can keep a tab on the number of vehicles that leave the complex.
“Two months ago, our security guards nabbed an outsider who was attempting carjacking in our housing complex. He fled the spot but we managed to save the vehicle because of the security measures,” Rai said.
