Type public toilet in Google Maps and you will be able to access 5,162 toilets in Delhi. This is the new feature that Google has launched in Delhi on Thursday. This is obviously a part of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s initiative – Swachch Bharat.


According to a survey of the United Nation, a whopping 595 million people in India defecate in the open. Google’s latest initiative will make people refrain from urinating in the public and defecating in the open.   


Google has also added few cities from Madhya Pradesh as well. These locations are marked as “Swachch Public Toilet.”


Gaurav Bhaskar, a spokesperson of Google, said that this feature will be soon launched in other cities as well. Indian government and Google are working closely on this. The sooner the government send their data to Google, the quicker they will be able to add the feature in other cities as well.
