Message from the CEO
Dear all,

At ELCITA, we usher in 2017 with new plans and ideas to take Electronics City to the next level. While we continue our journey of continuous improvement of roads, drains, security, management of all types of waste, 2017 has to be the year for SMART e-city and better traffic management.

We want to improve our pavements to make them more walkable, by replacing large BESCOM/BSNL boxes with SMART equipment. I envision the township glittering with energy efficient LED street lights that adjust brightness dynamically based on street usage. We will certainly collect water usage data to help conserve water. Surveillance cameras covering the township will strengthen our hands in ensuring the safety of employees and manage traffic and parking better.

In addition, we are dreaming of a SMART City  Test Bed that can be used by our own companies to pilot their products and services. This could well be the launching pad for their products and services. We have enthusiastic teams from Wipro, IISc, Mapunity, Bosch, VXL, customized technologies, Tejas, TCL and other firms joining hands to realize this vision of an efficient and sustainable city.

We visualize companies and employees in e-city partnering with ELCITA for a SMART world class township. Information will be available at our Command Centre to support the governance team and on mobiles, for ELCitizens to plan their daily activity better.

Welcome 2017, a year of action to realize our dreams, and results that encourage us to aim even higher!

I am working as a system admin in HP from past six months. I moved to Bangalore from Tumkur six years ago for my first job after graduation and since then I have never felt like leaving the city. I live in Banashankari.  

Despite Bangalore being a crowded place with heavy traffic issues, the city has got something which holds me here. In terms of growth and opportunity, I must admit, I have seen tremendous growth in my career. Each day comes with a new learning for me.  

One thing I would like the mention about the people here is they are proactive in taking up challenges. I would like to share a recent experience, where I saw a group who were removing a fallen tree that blocked the road, by themselves, instead of waiting for any government agency to intervene. Not a big thing, but sometimes even a small act is enough to move us.
