Smart Toilets arrive in Smart City Bhubaneswar
The Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation, in collaboration with Eram Scientific Solutions Private Limited, is set to install pre-fabricated modular e-toilets across the city at 30 designated locations. 60 planned toilets of which 40 are semi-automatic and 20 are fully automatic, will be installed across the Smart City with an aim to make Bhubaneswar Open Defecation Free (ODF). The fully automatic toilets are self-cleaning and will require card-based entry.
The foundation for this project was laid by Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik on 2nd October, 2018 and 10 toilets had already been installed on trial basis.
Citizen awareness, coupled with modern facilities can go a long way in achieving the target of making Bhubaneswar an ODF Smart City.
