Here I sit. broken-hearted
Paid my two bucks and only .. um. never mind.

The wonderful folk at Karmayog would like to draw your attention to the BMC Manual on Pay and Use Public Sanitary Conveniences in Mumbai. In it, you will find, among other things:
Fine applicable, if dirty, Rs. 500 / day -- pg 6
Facilities for the disabled are necessary -- pg 7
Monitoring Scorecard - Pg 63
Detailed looscaping & compulsory features and arrangements with photographs
There are many more articles, opinions, copies of policies in other countries in the Public Toilets section of the site.

Karmayog would also like to hear from you if you have info re:
policies in various countries
economics of pay-and-use
private-public partnership models
design parameters

They are compiling more information to discuss with BMC. Please get in touch with them if you would like to be involved. Mail info[at]karmayog[dot]com.
