NEW DELHI: South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) will upgrade up to 200 public toilets complexes to get an ODF++ ranking in Swachh Survekshan 2021. The corporation has made a list of 162 complexes on main roads, market areas or near public places that will get additional facilities.

Ministry of housing and urban affairs (MoHUA) has divided public toilets in five categories for the Survekshan based on their upkeep and facilities. These are unusable, usable but dirty, clean, very clean, excellent and aspirational.

“The indicators for the aspirational category are developing greenery around the complex, installing sanitary vending machines, incinerator or other facilities for disposal, paper napkins, multiple bins, soap dispensers, a feedback system and functional floodlights outside the complex for safety, in addition to regular services,” said an official. “Further, the spaces for advertising should be defined and there should be no encroachment around the space.”

The civic agency has also assigned a nodal officer for each of these toilets for daily inspection. “We are putting extra efforts on cleanliness and maintenance of these toilet complexes, which are open to the public from 6am to 10pm,” said Rajiv Jain, nodal officer for Swachh Bharat Abhiyan for the corporation. There are a total 590 public toilet complexes under the south corporation.

On Sunday, the civic agency also launched a drive for plastic waste removal.
