South Delhi Municipal Corporation on Saturday inaugurated 'bal shuachalaya' — Delhi's first dedicated public toilet for children. The facility with colourful graffiti and inbuilt infrastructure was opened in RK Puram.

Tulsi Joshy, the standing committee member and local councillor, said this novel concept was being introduced to prevent children from defecating in open. "There are many jhuggy jhopdi clusters in the area. While we developed many public toilets for women and men under Swacchh Bharat Abhiyan, the kids from these localities were unable to benefit from them," Joshy said.
