No water: Avoiding toilet only option for students 25.6.2017
Chennai: R. Sanjana (name changed), a class eight student of Anakaputhur Government Higher Secondary School, could be seen running to her residence after school every evening, to relieve herself. The pathetic restrooms coupled with the water scarcity problem are keeping many girls like Sanjana to avoid using the restrooms in their school. In an uncomfortable situation, they just don't urinate during the seven-odd hours in the school. Water scarcity, which is plaguing residents in the city, has new victims: schools. While private schools get away with the problem by opting to the private water tankers, the cash-starved government schools are facing the heat. Students complain that the restrooms in the Government Higher Secondary School in Anakaputhur have been dry since the school was recently re-opened after the vacation. While Sanjana was uncomfortable to talk about her situation, her mother questioned, "How can students focus on studies when the basic needs are not taken care of? I was told ...

‘Loo’ming problem continues on Marina beach 25.6.2017
Chennai: The Marina beach, which attracts a huge number of tourists, has failed to keep its toilets in check. Broken flush, taps and doors welcome visitors and the rooms are leaking with broken pipes.  Lacking in maintenance, the toilets reek of foul smell making it uncomfortable for people to use the "free" toilets along the beach stretch. A total of four people is allotted to maintain one complex that operates in shifts, two in the morning and two in the afternoon. "Every month we are given two bottles of phenol and two bottles of acid to clean the toilets. We have to buy new ones from our money if they get over," said one of the maintenance workers. He added that the authorities are yet to appoint a woman maintenance worker for the afternoon shift to maintain the ladies toilet and until then he has to wash the ladies toilet. One of the visitors said. "The toilets were well maintained before the jallikattu protest, but since then it has been in bad shape". The ...

B Ward staff to get personal lal batti 25.6.2017 DNA: Top News
The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation's (BMC) B Ward has gone hi-tech by giving LED name tags to its junior overseers (JO) and cleaning staff. The staff will wear tags on their shirt during duty hours. The initiative has been taken to stop open defaecation and littering in the ward.

The staff, who will bear the electronic tags, will also carry a fine receipt book. "We have authorised our officials to fine the offenders," said Shiroorkar, adding there would be no leniency in slapping ...

Tamil Nadu: Lack of staff, infra plague Primary Health Centres 25.6.2017
Chennai: Primary Health Centres (PHCs), set up under Urban Primary Health Services (UPHS) with the total allocation of Rs 7,000 crore in the state, earn the wrath of the people for their poor infrastructure, staff crunch and lack of facilities such as maternity services and ambulances The state health department on Friday held a campaign on cleanliness, but cleanliness remains a mirage at the Primary Health Centres maintained in Chennai. A visit by Deccan Chronicle to check out the facilities at PHCs revealed poor administration and lethargy. Heaps of garbage, cow dung welcome the patients at PHC on Five Furlong Road in Guindy. Without sufficient seating capacity, patients were seen lying on the floor at the reception desk.

Infighting in MC costs P’kula Smart City tag 25.6.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Chandigarh, June 24 Infighting in the Municipal Corporation (MC) has taken its toll on the city as it once again failed to make it to the Smart City list. While politicians and officials have indulged in blame game once again, residents are fuming over the failure as they are the ones who are suffering due to it. Be it poor condition of roads roads, the issue of the dumping ground in the city or the lack of cleanliness in general, the development of the city has taken a backseat in the midst of tussle in the MC. It has been more than a year now since an “effective” MC House took place. The last two meetings were held in the absence of MC officials. This has meant that even funds meant for development have gone unused and public works have been hit. The condition is such that even the High Court had to ask that the MC be taken over by the state government as it was not doing its job properly. The state had transferred the Municipal Commissioner after the court’s rap but things have ...

Chennai: Metro commuters rue about toilets in paid area 25.6.2017
CHENNAI: Increased connectivity of metro rail has led to a rise in patronage in recent days.  But, simultaneously, it raises a number of issues. One of the prime problems commuters face is paid toilets at some stations. "Two rupees is charged for using the washroom if it is in the non-paid area. Why should we pay two rupees extra every time we use a restroom despite paying a minimum of `10 for the travel?" said S. Priyanka, a commuter. On the 10-kilometer stretch from Alandur to Koyambedu, three washrooms are in the non-paid area including Koyambedu, Ashok Nagar and Vadapalani. When CMRL officials introduced the concept of paid toilets, they cited the reason of misuse by non-users of elevated train stations that witness high footfall. Koyambedu washrooms reportedly had people around the station using it to take bath. Another commuter Karthik Krishna says CMRL must either let ticket holders use washrooms in non-paid area for free or charge a fee in all metro stations. "Alandur ...
