Invisible public toilets 16.12.2017 deccanherald.com
A wannabe world city that wears its tech tag with enormous pride has barely 475 public toilet complexes to serve a population exceeding 1.1 crore! If men struggle in this inglorious mess, imagine the plight of Bengalurus women in their teeming millions. To spot a public toilet complex even in the citys relatively better equipped Central Business District (CBD) is a tough task. In their frantic search for a safe, clean, well-maintained public toilet, women often fail. Is this how a city with smart city ambitions rides its Swachh Bharat dream? Big gaps in last-mile connectivity between mass transport options and office / home inevitably mean long walks for women. To answer natures call, the only option would be to step into a restaurant or a private facility, which could be tough. Daily struggle Shwetha Rao, a senior manager of a private firm, had experienced it first hand on a shopping visit to Gandhinagar. "There was absolutely no sign of a public toilet. The restaurants were crowded. It was a ...

Absurd to say Delhiites bought cars due to metro fake hike, says minister 16.12.2017 Business Standard: News Now
Union minister Hardeep Singh Puri today dubbed as "absurd" the suggestions that Delhiites shifted to other modes of transport like cab services or started buying expensive cars due to the recent metro fare hike. The comments come in the backdrop of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal having writtena letter to Puri, seeking a review of the hike and reiterating his offer to partially bear the cost of the proposed "claw back". "Desire to create false narrative on #MetroFare taking an amusing turn. Its being suggested those who werent able to afford Indias cheapest metro can actually afford to buy & run expensive cars or use cabs. You dont have to be an economist to see absurdity of this argument," the Union minister said on Twitter. Hitting out at the AAP-led Delhi government, the housing and urban affairs minister said if the metro had become an "expensive luxury liner", the city governmentshould increase the number of Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) buses.

Union Minister asks Kejriwal to step up work under Clean India 16.12.2017 DNA: Top News
The Centre has raised with the Delhi government the issue of "under-utilisation" of funds under Swachh Bharat Mission and asked it to step up expenditure under the scheme to improve services, sources said. Housing and Urban Affairs Minister Hardeep Singh Puri has recently written to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, stating that Rs 104.75 crore were released by the ministry in 2015 against the allocation of Rs 349.75 crore, the sources said. "Out of this, a sum of Rs 32.52 crore only has been spent so far and the balance is lying unutilised. Urgent efforts appear to be called for to step up the incurring of expenditure and delivery of services to the Delhi's citizen for promoting Swachh Bharat," the sources said, quoting the letter. Delhi has revised its target of Individual Household Latrines (IHHL) to 435 against the mission target of 1,25,398 as community toilets were considered more feasible, they said. But, the target for community toilets was increased only by 370 which should have been ...
