Women And Kids Can Use Hotel Toilets For Free in South Delhi Monday May 01,2017

Starting on Monday May 01,2017, women and children won't have to hunt for public conveniences in busy markets in south Delhi as they can access toilet facilities at hotels and restaurants in the area for free

The move by the South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) has been taken as part of its efforts to boost the Swachh Bharat campaign in its area

In late March, the SDMC had already brought in the policy as a few hoteliers and restaurant-owners had agreed in principle.
"But, because of MCD elections, the code of conduct had come into place, so we never officially announced the policy. Hotel and restaurants which allowed people to use their facilities did it out of goodwill. From Monday, the new policy will officially come into force," a senior SDMC official on Sunday said.
The corporation said, however, the policy shall be reviewed in due course on the basis of feedback given by these business establishments, like the practical difficulties faced by them
South Delhi is home to several big markets, including Central Market, Amar Colony Market in Lajpat Nagar, Sarojini Nagar Market, INA Market, Delhi Haat, Lakshmi Bai Market. The area also has a number of restaurants and hotels, especially in Defence Colony, Lajpat Nagar and Malviya Nagar areas. So, the move will bring a relief to women shoppers who earlier had to face difficulties in accessing clean public conveniences.
