Owing to a spurt in the incidents of crime related to robbery,theft and murder in housing societies of Gurgaon last month,Gurgaon’s Commissioner of Police and Deputy Commissioner have issued guidelines,asking residents to get the registration and verification of their tenants and domestic help done as soon as possible.

Alok Mittal,Commissioner of Police (Gurgaon),said: “A tenant/domestic help verification form can be downloaded from the Gurgaon police’s website. The onus for providing information and verification of the tenants and domestic help lies with the landlord or employers. The collective effort to get all plumbers,washermen,domestic helps,drivers,guards etc verified will only help the residents greater security.”

Sudhir Kapoor,General Secretary,DLF RWA lauded the police’s efforts to make Gurgaon safer. “Given the heavy reliance on domestic help in Gurgaon,this is a great initiative from the Gurgaon police to ensure greater security of residents but some issues still need to

be addressed. Forms were accepted at a police station in DLF I,but the same format of forms were not accepted in the other DLF police station.”

Police have suggested getting verification done through a private security portal,Humari Suraksha. According to Ankit Trikha,Zonal Manager,Humari Suraksha: “The information is complied in an online database that can be accessed by the RWAs or police through a separate administration login ID provided by the firm.”

Deputy Commissioner P C Meena had recently invoked Section 144 for getting verification of tenants and domestic help done as soon as possible.

Issuing the orders,had mandated the residents,RWAs and office-bearers of housing societies to submit a detailed report about the credentials of tenants and domestic help.

RWAs and office-bearers of housing societies have also been asked to to install CCTV cameras on the entry and exit gates of sectors and housing societies. Violators of this order will be punished under Section 188 of IPC,Meena had said.
