In continued initiative towards Swachh Bharat Mission by the Government, M.Venkaiah Naidu, Minister of Urban Development, Government of India, inaugurated on April 6, 2016, a Namma Public Toilet, constructed at Preet Vihar Shopping Centre, New Delhi.

Rajiv Gauba, Secretary(UD), D S Mishra, Addl Secretary(UD) and Dr. Anoop Kumar Mittal, CMD, NBCC were among other dignitaries, present on the occasion. Implemented by NBCC, a Navratna CPSE of the Government of India, at a cost of Rs.13 lac, the modular toilet has been designed to discourage open defecation and is made of composite board.

The toilet module is prefabricated single mould without joints and its interiors are seamless with no sharp edges and corners to avoid dust accumulation.  Made to serve the convenience of physically challenged, women and men, the public toilet has also been provided with excellent interior lighting with natural light in day by a polycarbonate translucent roof sheet with metal protection  to meet the requirements of sufficient power supply in the toilet all along. In order to address the issue of waste disposal which is of primary importance, the whole system has been connected with underground sewer lines already existing at the place. This is a significant initiative by NBCC which, under the patronage of the Ministry of Urban Development, has taken a lead in Swachh Bharat campaign of the Government of India, beginning since 2014.

NBCC has been implementing a total of 30 such NAMMA Model Public Toilets in Delhi under its CSR initiative and being implemented by the Company Subsidiary named NBCC Services Ltd. (NSL), which has been mandated to take up such activities all across the country. Out of these 30 Toilets, 21  Toilets have already been implemented with one inaugurated on 2nd October 2015 at Bhikaji Cama Place, New Delhi. The remaining 19 Toilets at other locations of Delhi, have also been inaugurated on the same day alongwith the one at Preet Vihar, New Delhi on April 6, 2016.
