To help women and girls access hygienic washrooms in busy markets, the South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) inaugurated the first ‘pink toilet’ in Vikaspuri on Wednesday.
The first-of-its-kind facility, opened on the occasion of the International Day for the Girl Child, has vending machines for sanitary napkins, incinerator facilities and feeding area for breastfeeding mothers.
SDMC Mayor Kamaljeet Sehrawat said that the toilet has been opened at a place that witnesses a substantial footfall of women and girls.
The civic agency aims to open more such toilets in order to provide a convenient safe place in markets flooded with visitors and customers.
Such facilities must be provided in the market area where the footfall of women is very high. This example should be followed in all major cities around the country.
