Now use an app to locate the nearest loo. Lieutenant
Governor Najeeb Jung launched an app, Find x Toilet, on Tuesday that helps
locate a toilet nearest to one’s current location as well as allows users to
rate the quality and upkeep of public toilets in Delhi.
Appreciating Ishan Anand’s efforts, Jung asked all the three
municipal corporations and the DDA to make use of the app to upgrade the
existing conditions and services of public toilets and also help in updating
locations of all the public toilets which do not figure at present. Anand is a part of Swachh Bharat campaign who has developed this app.
The app gives location and information on 1,000 toilets in Delhi, which is about 80 per cent of the total toilets in the national capital. I will soon cover all the toilets. Besides people can also add toilets through the app.Ishan Anand
The mobile app uses the GPS to find nearby publicly
accessible toilets. Once the nearest toilet is located/selected then the app
will provide the shortest route to exact location of the selected toilet, Anand added.
