New Delhi [India], July 22 (ANI): The North Delhi Municipal Corporation has started a new citizen-friendly initiative in the Karol Bagh Zone to place urinal locations on GPS mode.
For the betterment of the society and to provide easy access to public conveniences in the city, the North Delhi Municipal Corporation has initiated a project of putting details of these facilities on Google Maps.
On pilot basis, details of restrooms and urinals in Karol Bagh Zone have been placed on Google Maps.
“We had asked the officials to visit all 210 toilet complexes in this zone and obtain their exact latitude and longitude details for sharing it on Google. It took them three days to upload the information, and now, anyone can find their locations on smart phones, using GPS,” said Nitin Pramod, Deputy Commissioner, Karol Bagh Zone.
The civic agency has 1,163 urinals, 499 community toilet complexes, 41 women toilets and 318 waterless urinals in six zones – City, Karol Bagh, Chandni Chowk, Civil Lines, Rohini and Narela.
The details of the loos can also be accessed by typing the name of the road where the person is travelling.
“Considering that people are not well acquainted with the boundaries of Karol Bagh or any other zone, they can simply search the list of MCDs toilets by typing the name of the road such as Pusa Road, Rohtak Road and Faiz Road. At present, locating a public toilet is a challenging task and the only option left with people is to go to nearby restaurants and cafes. Having this information handy will make things much easier,” said Pramod. (ANI)
