Ahmadabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) on 9 June 2015 announced USE and GET PAID scheme, under which people will be paid one rupees for using public toilets. The announced scheme aims to eradicate the practice of open defecation and will help to keep the city clean.
The scheme was recently approved by the standing committee of the AMC. According to the health officer of AMC, every user will not be paid but the corporation will identify people who defecate in open and sensitise them to use public toilets. The scheme will be implemented in next few days.
AMC has turned around its previous scheme PAY and USE, under which people were supposed to pay for using the public toilets.
The scheme was launched after the corporation indentified 120 spots in the city where people used to defecate in the open. Now, these places will be provided with lavatory facilities.
