  1. INTRODUCTION

    Generally, in Society all the work is decided in meetings and maintenance bills, contact no of members are recorded on the papers. There is no automated system for doing all the things that generally happens in society, so that members can come to know what is happening in society. The Society Management System allows members to login with their own account and get updated with society happenings. Society Management System is the website portal to reduce conflicts among society members. The system has automated functionality for calculating monthly maintenance and member can view their bill status on their account. The main functionality of this project is that, there is a voting system for different society positions like Chairman, Treasurer Etc. Member can vote the candidates that are standing for different roles in society.

    The system provides a unique interface to every user to interact with the system. System accepts queries from users and evaluates the need of the query and fires it over the database and results are displayed to the user.

  2. EXISTING SYSTEM

    Existing system for a society is based on our traditional way keeping records and details on paper and registers. Access of these details and papers are not granted to common member in absence of the authority. For voting for various designations (secretary, treasurer, chairman, etc) in society members need to be present on site for voting. Due to some unavoidable reasons some members cannot cast vote. Proposed system has a facility for voting online which will provide anytime anywhere access. Booking a hall for celebration in a society was tedious work as details were on paper and were only accessible only to the authority which may create confusion when two or more people want to celebrate in same hall. We studied Housing Society Management System [5]. This software system generates bill automatically and manually. It creates bill of all members at single click. In this system bills can be generated as per multiple of months i.e. monthly, quarterly half yearly etc. due day of bills can be assigned. Housing Society Management System does not allow user to cast vote or manage nominees and does not have a provision for hall allocation. This software concentrates mainly on generation of bills whereas our system integrates various other features

    of society which are exact replica of the real happenings in the society. Including features like voting, hall allocation, report generation etc. Our system provides more efficient and accurate results and can be accessed anywhere anytime.
