MyGate was started in Bengaluru, India in 2016 by former Indian Air Force pilot Vijay Arisetty along with Shreyans Daga and Abhishek Kumar to address efficiency and security gaps at the gates of communities. The simplicity of this innovative app – and its positive impact on residents, managing committee members, guards and the overall community-led to strong organic adoption in many Indian metros. From here, MyGate has built on its original idea to create the most comprehensive solution, impacting every aspect of community living.
Residents can use the MyGate app to communicate with neighbours, discuss matters of the community and society on internal discussion forums, manage visitors (guests, deliveries, cabs etc.), maintain attendance record, and salary payments for daily help, discover services, pay society maintenance bills, among much else. The all in one app has set a new standard for modern community management, ensuring convenient living or working experience for residents, RWA, security personnels and all other stakeholders within a gated community.
