192 NHAI toll plazas equipped with separate male, female toilets

New Delhi, January 31, 2018: The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has provided toilet facilities at 192 toll plazas across the country.

Around 180 more toll plazas will be covered by the end of March, 2019 across India, informed a Ministry of Road Transport and Highways press release. 

Under the Government of India’s flagship programmes Swachh Bharat Mission, the NHAI is providing separate ladies and gents toilets on both upside and down side of each of its 372 toll plazas, and also placing litterbins and hoardings carrying the Swachhta message along with message discouraging littering at these sites.

The NHAI has observed both the current Swachhta Pakhwada from January 16 to 31 as well as the earlier one from January 16 and 31 last year.

It has been proposed to achieve the target of providing toilet facilities at every toll plaza during the final year of the Swachh Bharat Mission. The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways is monitoring the progress.
