Under Swachh Bharat Mission, 480 public toilet seats will be installed at 80 different locations in Delhi in the next three months, Ministry of Urban Development said in an official statement.
The four urban local bodies of Delhi will identify 20 locations each for installing public toilet complexes with six seats each. The hugely popular ‘NAMMA’ model being implemented in Tamil Nadu and the ones evolved by Delhi Urban Arts Commission (DUAC) will be used for building public toilets in the national capital.
National Buildings Construction Corporation (NBCC) will support part of the expenditure to be incurred under Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
Delhi Urban Shelter Improvement Project (DUSIP) will prepare an action plan for installing about 1,000 community toilet seats in slum areas. For building community toilet seats, 40% Viability Gap Funding will be extended while this support will not be available for building public toilet seats, for the use of which nominal user charges will be recovered.
Under Swachh Bharat Mission in urban areas, 1,25,398 individual household toilets, 9,156 public toilet seats and 1,982 community toilet seats are to be built by 2019 besides ensuring 100% Solid Waste Management . This is estimated to cost Rs.350 crore.
