Gated Community – Heaven for residents or Haven for Criminals?
As the Ayanavaram gated community child rape case unfolds and tears the image of Chennai as a decent city, residents of this Ceebros Boulevard in OMR should ponder over their misgivings. Many crimes here have gone unreported to the police and the one committee member (who is hosting these contents despite being put to insurmountable sufferings and threats), who highlighted such issues and suggested pro-active steps was forced to resign from committee after just 3 months of assuming office.
Dog bite of workman in the terrace, suicide of a female in block 1, attempted suicide and total suppression of another female in block 2, daylight chain snatching robbery in front of security camera…
Isolated unidentified spots not regularly visited by residents and or committee members who are discouraged from identifying themselves, no proper election of intimation about selection of office bearers, manipulation of accounts and payments in illegal apartment adda society maintenance software, passing the bug and blames on innocent employees and workers, keeping them at lowest numbers purposely but paying for them huge amounts in the guise of service providers…
Threatening the residents who place diverse and different view in apartment adda… Never allowing anyone to check financial records, not maintaining them,
Ignoring 85% residents insulting them as ‘Tenants have no right to talk’,
Shame on you , …. all …
AGM timing was cleverly planned at 9 am on Sunday so that most of the intending visitors may arrive late and silenced with a quip that they arrived late. Before that careful planning went to exclude 85% of residents in the tag of ‘tenants’ without keeping in mind that it is their (tenants) money that the select few enjoy.
Apartment-ADDA is root cause of all corruption and should be banned in the country. Had it been in strict European Union, the developer would have been sent to Jail by now. In this software, they can show one receipt to you and same receipt to another resident and payment you make will not reflect directly the association name and hence you can not even prove that you made the payment.
Collecting huge maintenance charges month after month, we are suppose to have a carpus fund of nearly Rs.18 Crore by now. Remember all major expenses including compound wall and cyclone and flood related expenses are directly collected from residents in a forced manner. Now even house keeping is minimal as we are forced to visit and drop the garbage ourselves. Handful of security guards at the entrance. Water and Gas charged more that actual cost and where the profit goes no one knows. To fool the residents this poor association is saving money by not taking monthly readings of gas and water. Thank God, EB readings are taken by Government. Else, they will take reading once in a year and may charge you as they please..
A lunch was being served at the end of AGM to privileged few. The most sinful food, partaken in corruption… If you consumed it, regret … no other go…
One more AGM will take place on 08th July 2018. Most of the participants (80%) will be same set of people. The new members will be awed by the professionalism and dedication of highly qualified people running the affairs of the Association. All will be shown colorful charts and beautiful explanations.
“Anyone having any doubt, is welcome to come and inspect the records at anytime” will be a standard parlance that will silence the possible critics.
No one will ask about why democratic process is not followed in electing office bearers. No one will ask what right and in what process so called green brigade took charge and dictating terms to the residents. No one will ask about restoration of amenities that are curtailed.
