A Resident Welfare Association (RWA) is a civic body that represents interests of the residents of a specific locality in Indian cities. It is not an official part of the government. An RWA can work well if there is active participation of the members. They take up issues like lighting on roads, cleanliness of roads, safety measures for residents, stray dog problems, water supply problem, etc. Taking an active part and interest in your RWA is a must for every resident. An efficient RWA is necessary in a society to maintain proper security, solve garbage disposal issues, and take care of utility and other services.In a colony, people face a lot of teething problems. Coming together to form an organization and doing your bit for the community is not only important but also necessary because you are an integral part of that community. You will also face the problems others face. If the roads are pitiable, water supply erratic and electric supply irregular, everyone living in the locality will face it and so will you and your family. Hence, by taking avid interest and participating in the community services you are also helping yourself and your family.
It is also a latest trend to form such associations to help in the facilitation of your day to day activities. You learn to live in a close knit society. The crime rate also comes down and these localities are safe for your women and children. We are not living in the dark ages; the new era has taught us to live together in a peaceful and harmonious way. This helps you to remain connected.
Nowadays most of the colonies or sectors have their own RWAs. Even the illegal bastis or areas try to form these associations. If all of us try to take the initiative we can work together for the betterment of our societies.

With technology, all this is made easier. Each RWA has its own webpage, list of members, schedule etc. online. One can stay connected and know what is happening and how our problems can be solved. The associations also connect with other associations for friction less working. They are now concentrating on all your civic amenities, your security and now the most important is disaster management. So be a part of these associations so we can all have a safe and sound tomorrow in which our daily life and routine can be maintained.
