PMC has so far surveyed 297 Public toilet blocks and 98 Urinals within the city limits of which, 74% are maintained by them. Maintenance of the public toilets to provide good sanitation services had always been a challenge and hence PMC partnered with various corporate houses facilitate the same.
Corporate Involvement in Public Toilets
- Adar Poonawala City Cleanliness Movement by the Serum Institute has pledged 100 crores towards SWM and Sanitation initiatives under which e-toilets with five years maintenance will be installed at 100 different public places across Pune city.
- Pune City Connect has developed a strategy for a coalition of public toilets under CSR and has developed an innovative model of financial and operational sustainability. 300 well maintained public toilets will be provided under this initiative.
- PMC has also come up with Public Toilet Service Level Agreement to involve corporate & private operators for efficient management of public toilets through a revenue generating model. This policy will leverage technologies to the optimal level and bring about a change while also re-engineering processes in all its functions and deliveries to the citizens.
