Now, Locate Public Toilets Near You on Google Maps in Delhi!

Over 5,000 community toilets and toilets near petrol pumps, railway stations and bus stands can be located across Delhi, Gurgaon, Faridabad, Ghaziabad and Noida zones.

Tired of holding your bladder thanks to lack of toilets in public, or more importantly, hygienically safe toilets in public?

The New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) has partnered with Google on the latter’s toilet locator awareness campaign through which public toilets across Delhi, Gurugram, Faridabad, Ghaziabad and Noida zones can be located on Google Maps.

According to The Indian Express, the Google Toilet Locator Awareness Campaign had already been flagged off as a pilot project last year as told by officials at NDMC.

Over 5,000 community toilets and toilets near petrol pumps, railway stations and bus stands have been geo-tagged and are part of the database on Google Maps.

Reportedly, the campaign had emerged as an imminent resort to tackle the never-ending crisis of open defecation and urination across the country by the Ministry of Urban Development (MoUD) last year.

Though the initial reports had been about piloting the campaign across the National Capital Region or NCR, the talks have been going on about scaling and expanding the project across other cities after receiving feedback from users in the region.

The toilets falling under the NDMC region can also be located using the NDMC Mobile App — NDMC311.

“The civic body is in the process of launching smart toilets across the region that will come attached with facilities like ATMs, rooftop solar panel, sanitary pad vending machine, digital health clinic and online user feedback tablet. A total of 109 smart toilets are being constructed,” Naresh Kumar, who is the chairperson of NDMC, told The Indian Express.
