JORHAT, May 26: Jorhat city is gearing up to get the first of its kind public toilet at the initiative of Jaki Devi Agarwalla Charitable Trust, proposal of which was duly accepted by Deputy Commissioner of Jorhat, Solanki Vishal Vasant, who had through an order vide JAP.11/2016/1 dated May 16, given permission for the construction of the Sanitary Complex at KB Road Tiniali for pay and use of the general public.

Talking more on the topic, And Agarwalla, Maging Director of the Trust, while talking to The Sentinel said, “For a long time I was thinking about a way to remove the problems faced by the common people of the city, especially women. Men still find a way out but women are the worst sufferers. And it was on this idea that our Trust approached the Jorhat district administration and the Deputy Commissioner Solanki Vishal Vasant after seeing the NOC received from the JMB (Jorhat Municipality Board) and verbal consent from the PWD (B) Commissioner. We not only got permission but were also allotted a plot of land wherein we have already started construction. The total cost of the project is Rs 12 lakh which will be borne by the Trust.”

Agarwalla further said, “The salient feature of the pay and use toilet is that it will house a special toilet for the physically handicapped, besides four Indian latrines in the male section and four in the female section, totalling eight and eight other urils for men, besides two separate drinking water facilities. The entire maintence of the toilet will solely lie on the Jaki Devi Agarwalla Trust and only a rupee for using urils and Rs 2 for the toilets will be charged. Drinking water is free. I felt greatly inspired by Prime Minister rendra Modi’s Swacha Bharat Abhijan.”
