BMC to map public toilets in the city

Written By Unknown on Kamis, 21 Februari 2013 | 22.23

MUMBAI: The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) will be taking a survey to map all the public toilets in the city.

The BMC will conduct the survey so then there is a clear idea of the need of toilets as against the demand and work can be taken to bridge the gap.

A senior official from the solid waste department said there are nearly 4,500 toilets in the city, of which 65-70 per cent are for men and the remaining for women.

The civic body will also focus on collecting data regarding the number of toilets available along the railway stations and railway lines and slums.

To assess the need for sanitation, the civic body will also survey properties of other public agencies such as MHADA, SRA, MMRDA and PWD among others to account of the public toilets in their area.

Though the survey will initially be undertaken by ward-level officials in each area, all the data will later be mapped out using geographic information system ( GIS).

A similar survey was conduced In 2001, and which it was found that over 200 of the city's 1,435 slums have no toilet facilities on their premises. It had been estimated that more than 10 lakh people lived in slums during that period.
