Listed below are some of the cases which ApnaComplex Penalty Rules Engine supports. Do note these are just a small list of possibilities. The engine supports nearly innumerable penalty schemes. Treasurers now can calculate penalty for one or more charge types (not just maintenance charge – but any charge type and any number of types) and you can get a fair idea of the powerful engine with the examples below:
1. Calculate penalty at a flat rate of Rs. 25/- per every day of delay.
2. Calculate penalty for at a rate of Rs. 500/- for 1st week of delay and Rs. 1000/- there after
3. Calculate penalty at a compounded rate of interest on the invoice amount.
4. Calculate penalty at 10% per annum on the maintenance charge for a delay of a week and 20% of the maintenance charge if the payment is delayed by more than week
5. Calculate penalty at 2% per month on reducing balance as per the payments received against an invoice.
6. Apply penalty charges only if the outstanding amount is greater than a minimum amount
and many more..
Now, don’t you call this a true Diwali Gift for the treasurers!?

Maintaining the roads is quite important, for daily activities within the complex to pass unhindered. Well maintained roads in an apartment complex also increase the value of the place.
When roads in an apartment complex are not maintained in a regular manner, the apartment association will have to spend much money on filling the potholes or setting up new roads.
This money, which can be saved through periodic maintenance, can be channelized to various other projects that require attention in an apartment.
In order to ensure that the roads are properly maintained, take up the issue with the apartment association during resident body meetings. While residents can take small steps in order to contribute their bit, the apartment association can get the maintenance team to do the difficult tasks.
The roads in an apartment complex undergo a lot of destructive changes, and fatigue cracking, rutting, roughness, weathering, and raveling are common problems that can be noted.
The apartment association will have to take on different approaches based on the problem involved. Crack sealing is a process that’s followed in order to maintain roads and surface treatment can be done in order to prolong the life of the particular road.
This treatment measures should be taken up by professionals, who can be hired by the apartment association. Through surface treatment measures, these problems can be solved.
A lot of factors affect the type of maintenance undertaken within the housing complex. These include the type of distress, vehicle loading, the general climate in the region, the cost of treatment; the roads expected life, the existing road type, and availability of good materials.
Residents can help maintain the quality of roads within the apartment complex by giving regular feedback on their defects to the management as well as bearing with the inconvenience caused during the repair of the roads.

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has issued a new regulation on the SMS industry in India. These regulations will be into effect on September 27, 2011. These regulations are designed to restrict the sending of unsolicited commercial messages. The restriction is done through a National Customer Preference Registry (NCPR) (earlier called as of the National Do Not Call list). You can read more about this at http://nccptrai.gov.in/nccpregistry/
Here are the implications of this new regulation for ApnaComplex Users:
1. Till today, Members/Staff of your society (even if they were part of earlier DND registery) were able to get the SMS messages from ApnaComplex. With the new guidelines coming into force, members who are registered in NCPR will not be able to receive SMS sent through ApnaComplex. To continue receiving the SMS from ApnaComplex, users would need to de-register from NCPR. To de-register from NCPR and start receiving SMSs from ApnaComplex send SMS ‘STOP 0’ to 1909.
2. Members will not receive any SMS from 9 pm to 9 am, even if their number is not in NCPR registry. Any SMS scheduled/sent between 9PM to 9 AM would automatically get queued and sent around 9 AM.
3. The sender id will no longer be ‘apnacplx’ and will be in form of XY-RZZZZZ as per new TRAI regulations.
4. This is applicable for ALL SMS generated by ApnaComplex – SMS that are explicitly sent by administrators OR system generated SMSs such as complaint escalations / invoice notifications / SMS reminders.

We could go live in less than 3 weeks and your support in achieving this is FANTASTIC.

Hoping to have to have the same kind of support in future too!!!!”

“First of all, what I felt with Apnacomplex is the terrific support provided to us as starter. Thier prompt and consistent mails helped us a lot to implement the system without wasting time.
Regarding the functionality, I swear that ApnaComplex has incorporated all the requirements of the day to day management of apartment complexes. Some of the functions which attracted me more are the discussion forum, notice board, facility booking etc. which will be very helpful especially for owners staying outside the country and those who are not much organized with emails.
About accounts section the main attraction is that one need not to be an accountant to use ApnaComplex and handle accounts. It’s just simple as that!
I will surely introduce Apnacomplex to my friends and colleagues who are waiting for their apartment complexes to be handed over in the near future.”
Thank you Mr. Hafiz for your words! This motivates us to do better!
