The complex will soon be Wi-Fi enabled, thus enabling live viewing of the last rites. The management, administered by Indian Community Welfare Organisation (ICWO), will also install location finders to enable easy navigation to the destination.
"A fast and free Wi-Fi connection will help relatives easily share directions and possibly live-stream the proceedings for loved ones who couldn't make it. If the public response is positive, the project may be replicated in other crematoriums managed by ICWO across the state," said ICWO founder-secretary A J Hariharan.
An accent on technology will also enable in some communities to witness the last rites. "There is a stigma attached to women attending rituals in the crematorium. The initiative will ensure women's participation, albeit virtually, in the funeral of their loved ones,'' added Mariharan.
The organization took over the management in 2014 and has since then tried to make a visit to the crematorium less traumatic by landscaping,, new seating arrangements, wall art and cameras.
