GURUGRAM: The district administration has allowed seven major licensed colonies in the city to set up gates with riders that the entry and exit points should have night vision cameras with the provision of at least one month of footage backup and 24×7 deployment of guards.

The permission from deputy commissioner Nishant Yadav came on the recommendations of the department of town and country planning (DTCP) and the Gurugram police, in the wake of the RWAs of eight licensed colonies seeking approval for the installation of gates over safety and security issues.

These colonies are Ardee City B Block, DLF phases I, II & V, blocks C of Sushant Lok I, II & III. Another colony, Experion Society in Sector 112, which also sought permission for installing gates, has, however, been refused the same.

District town planner (enforcement) RS Batth said, “In view of the safety of the residents, the permission has been granted initially for a period of two month. But the gates should in no way hamper inter- and intra-colony movement. If directions are not followed, the gates will be removed.”

He said the permission was granted on conditions that night vision cameras would have to be installed at the gates with the provision of at least one month of footage backup. Also the gates should be manned 24×7 by guards, and all internal roads of the colonies must have convex mirrors. The RWAs should also store at least one year of the footage of the installed cameras.

As per norms, any gate erected on 24-metre roads, sector dividing roads or any public roads is illegal. Colonies are allowed to install boom barriers on internal roads only if there are security issues. Also all such boom barriers must be manned by guards. “All societies must display the permission letter at the gates itself,” Batth said.

RWAs of these licensed colonies have welcomed the decision. “With the permission to install gates, the safety and security concerns of residents will be taken care of to a great extent. We will fulfill the conditions and the abide by the rules,” said DLF II Q Block RWA president RN Srivastava.
