South delhi launches City’s first ‘Pink Toilet’

Opened on the occasion of the international day for the girl child, the south delhi municipal corporation inaugurated the first ‘pink toilet’ in vikaspuri, south delhi on Wednesday.
These toilets have vending machines for sanitary napkins, incinerator facilities and feeding area for breastfeeding.
“The market adjoining PVR Vikaspuri is a major shopping centre where a large number of women come everyday to buy items of day-to-day requirement. But they always face problems in accessing hygienic toilets with facilities for sanitary napkins and their safe disposal,” said SDMC Mayor Kamaljeet Sehawat.
The South Delhi Municipal Corporation SDMC was the first civic agency among the three municipal corporations in city to make the access to toilets in hotels and restaurants free for women and children in May and had directed all the petrol pumps to offer similar facilities. This move has made more than 4,000 toilets accessible to the public.
