It has been noticed that thousands of public toilets in the city went missing post-Swachh Survekshan and Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation polls. However, the officials are not very keen to reveal the data and the amount spent on setting up these toilets prior to Swachh Survekshan and municipal polls. 


In January, the civic body claimed that about 7800 toilets had been installed in 3500 locations around the municipal corporation. They added that efforts were on to meet the target of 10,000 toilets. It was said that Hyderabad would have the most public toilets once they reach the target. 


However, now the GHMC says that the construction of public toilets has been delayed due to the pandemic. They say the remaining 2200 toilets would be installed at the earliest. The GHMC also revealed that these toilets will be maintained by agencies and that Rs 3500 has been allotted for the maintenance of each toilet. 


Incidentally, the annual expenditure of these public toilets falls between Rs 22-25 crore. Though the government flaunted erecting public toilets during the civic polls, once the polls were over, the GHMC made a U-turn and is now saying that having a toilet every 500 mts would spoil the city’s look. In fact, 1000 public toilets were dismantled following the polls. A few hundred others were also removed from footpaths and other arterial stretches. 


One problem is despite inviting tenders; private agencies have not come forward for the maintenance of these toilets, and citing this, the GHMC has decided to remove the toilets. Also, the unhygienic usage of toilets was another reason.
