Over 300 public toilets in the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) area can now be located on Google Maps.
The civic body has launched a toilet locator awareness campaign, under which community toilets, besides those located at petrol pumps, railway stations and bus stands, are being added to the database.
The users will also be asked to give feedback for toilets they locate using Google. The campaign will be run from 12 July to 11 August. Once the campaign ends, the cleanest toilet will be awardedNaresh Kumar, NDMC Chairman
"At present, 333 public toilets have been mapped on Google to enable citizens and visitors to locate the nearest public toilet in an area. While the step is aimed at reducing public urination, it is important that the toilets are in good condition and hence, the feedback is being sought," he added.
