MEWAT: Marora village is all set to get 95 toilets on Sunday which is also marked as World Toilet Day. The toilets have been constructed by Sulabh International. The new toilets require lesser water for flushing, and the ecxrement will be converted into manure.
Earlier this year in June, Sulabh Intenational, the Social Service Organisation had renamed the Mewat’s Marora village as Trump Village in June this year and also claimed to have adopted the village. However, no official permission was sought for the same, and the posters of “Trump Gram” were removed by the district administration within 3 days of renaming.
However, now the organisation has made efforts to uplift the village. On Sunday, 95 households in the village will get toilets. Notably, there are 120 houses in the villages, out of which 95 houses didn’t have a toilet. Also, village’s government primary village will get two toilets. A temporary toilet sculpture will be unveiled in the village, to mark the technology.
Considering the water-shortage in the village, these toilets will have twin-pit technology. Under this, no sewerage line is required. Also, these toilets pots will use only one litre of water, as compared to the regular toilets. The excrement is collected underground pit and it will merge into the soil. After two years, the excrement will convert in manure after 24 months’ time.
“Each Sulabh Magic Toilet will cost around Rs 40,000 and it is going to help not only in keeping the village open defecation free, but will also socially uplift the area. We wanted to built toilets that work, and this technology is workable in the rural areas. As a result, the grooms in the village will also be now able to find themselves a bride,” said Dr Bindeshwar Pathak, founder, Sulabh International.
