‘Suvidha Kendra’ India’s biggest toilet block with 111 toilet seats has been launched in Mumbai’s Dharavi. It will benefit over 50,000 residents by providing them easy access to clean water, hygiene and sanitation.
The Centre will play a big part in saving 6.5 million litres of fresh water every year.
The centre has an inbuilt greywater treatment plant facility powered by solar panels for energy generation.
The Maharashtra government is mulling on coming up with similar centres at 10 more locations in Ghatkopar, Dharavi, Chembur, Bandra, Santacruz and Govandi. BMC has built 19 community toilets in the last 2 years in Dharavi, with a total capacity of 800 toilet seats.
