Lucknow Municipal Corporation fails to meet accessibility guidelines in making toilets


The Lucknow Municipal Corporation has not been able to meet the target of toilet construction set under the Swachh Bharat Mission.

The toilets that have been made do not meet the guidelines set. They are not accessible for people with disabilities.

Reports are that the Lucknow Municipal Corporation (LMC) ignored the rules set by the central government regarding accessibility.

The structures lack basic facilities for disabled people, the elderly, and children.

The toilets do not have ramps, railings by the stairs, or low-height urinals for children.

This was even after a survey was held prior to the start of construction. So far, the LMC has built only 25 toilets. This is despite getting Rs 1.2 crore from the central government for the purpose.
