The Swachh Bharat Mission wants to promote affordable, sustainable and environmentally friendly toilet technologies across the nation. However, in certain parts of the country, these available technologies have not been successful in being robust and cost-effective. This is especially true for areas which are flood-prone, areas which have a hard rock surface, and areas which are remote and poorly connected with transportation infrastructure.
The Swachh Bharat Mission Gramin invites solutions for innovative toilet technologies from the participants for the following areas:
- Remote and poorly connected areas or/and
- Hard rock areas or/and
- Flood Prone areas
Any solutions for the Upgradation of the current technology that is being adopted by the ministry that is, the twin pit system are also welcome.
It is expected that the technology is cost-effective, sustainable, reliable and durable, user-friendly, weather proof, environmental-friendly, and preferably uses locally available material (locally implies the area to which the technology is built for).
