KSWDC is in the process of implementing a pilot programme that would build 23 electronic self-cleaning “she-toilets” in Thiruvananthapuram district. The Electronic Public Toilet is an innovative product that requires minimum of manual intervention and its facilities include automated payment collection, door opening system, flushing, sterilisation, cleaning etc. GPRS system is used for controlling the unit remotely. Privacy, dignity and safety for women are also effectively ensured.
The toilets are mobile and come fully equipped with baby changing stations, sanitary napkin vending machines and incinerators. KSWDC aims to install them at more than 200 locations across the state.
