More Toilets should be made available. And there should be clear segregation like only for urinal, only for bath and for urinal and fecal excretion. And the price should also change based on the purpose. And this should be given to private contractors. The price should be fixed so that the contractor makes profit out of it. And there should be a survey feedback form available to the users to provide their inputs on a need basis. And every month there should be random anonymous audit by govt officials to check whether these are maintained properly. if not the contract should be cancelled and should be renewed with a new group. more

Public toilets in District Park, next to Dear Park in South Delhi are always stinking. Sometimes there is no water, generally there's no soap. Missing water tap or a broken wash basin can only be the handiwork of rowdies. The saddest part is when visitors leave their throat phlegm in the urinals or in the wash basin without washing it away. Now, this is education, right ?
Public toilets in Sunder Nursery, next to Humayun's Tomb, on the other hand, earns a very positive certificate. It's clean, capacious, without stink. more
