The Google toilet locator is an initiative of the ministry of urban development. The service was launched in five Indian cities – Delhi, Gurgaon, Faridabad, Ghaziabad and Noida -in December last year. The ministry has now decided to expand the project and have the same service for the residents of 85 more cities including Bhubaneswar.
Citizens can use the service by downloading a smart phone application called GoogleMaps Toilet LocatorApp. While searching for the toilet, the users will have to open the app and Google will detect the user’s location and provide information on the nearby toilets.
Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) has decided to introduce this service to help residents and keep the city clean.
