Kolkata: Bio toilets, sanitisation tunnels to come up in Kumortuli

Kolkata/IBNS: Shrachi group has taken an initiative to build six bio-toilets, restore 10 old ones, place two sanitisation tunnels and one contactless hand washing unit for the workers in Kumortuli ahead of Durga Puja here.

The project, christened as “Nirmal” is an innovative move that has been undertaken considering the hygiene of the workers during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Steps will also be taken to ensure that the workers are given proper training to use the bio-toilets.

The project was inaugurated at Kumortuli area last Wednesday where artisans Gopal Chandra Sarkar and Mala Pal were present, along with dhakiwalas to create a puja-like atmosphere.

Noted puja theme artists Sanatan Dinda, Bhobotosh Sutar and Amal Sarkar were also present at the event.

Ravi Todi, Chairman, Shrachi group said, "The most important thing that this pandemic has taught us is maintenance of hygiene. The sanitization situation of Kumortuli was deplorable. The workers could not take the orders of the idol due to the same.

"With the Pujas knocking on the door and thinking about the huge losses that everybody would have had to face if the idols did not get delivered at the scheduled time, creating the toilets was of utmost importance.”
