Public toilet project yet to take off

Kannal Achuthan Corporation had to go for tender again A view of a closed public convenience on the Konnur High Road at Ayanavaram in Chennai. The Chennai Corporation's plan to construct new public toilets and allow advertisements on their outer walls is yet to take off. The civic body had chalked out rules stating that fines would be imposed on people who urinate or defecate in public beginning April 1 but had deferred the decision by two months to meet the demand for more public toilets. The rules are in force since June 1 but the toilets are yet to be built.
