Hyderabad, February 9
With a view to create a cleaner Hyderabad city, Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) has decided to construct e-toilets with latest technology at places where open urination is more in the city. As part of the plan, both She-toilets and He-toilets for women and men would be constructed.
Already, the two She-Toilets being set up at the tourism attraction destination at Charminar is eliciting humungous response.
The GHMC is collecting huge funds from various companies under ‘Corporate Social Responsibility Scheme’ to construct the e-toilets. The construction cost of each toilet is around Rs 7.5 lakh. The chosen companies will look after the maintenance of the toilets for two years. Any cloth or waste materials will be incinerated. Care has been taken to run these toilets with less consumption of water.
What is more, the GHMC has targeted to establish 100 e-toilets in the city. Several corporate companies and NRIs are voluntarily willing to construct these toilets.
A few companies agreed to construct 25 e-toilets that include the SBI agreeing to set up three She-Toilets, Hudco 15 She-Toilets, Indian Oil Corporation, KIMS Hospital and NMDC two each and Texab and the Plastic Association one She-Toilet respectively.
Recently, the Bharat Dynamics Limited agreed to construct 15 She-Toilets and the officials have asked the GHMC Commissioner to identify the locations.
Suni, an NRI from New Zealand has agreed to construct 100 urinals in the city under Graper Company. The e-toilets are more likely to come up at tourist spots, shopping malls, public places and Rythu Bazaars.
