NOIDA: Even though the Noida Authority
has declared the city open-defecation-free (ODF), slum-dwellers of Noida say more free facilities are required in the interiors of the sectors to realise the dream.
Slum-dwellers admitted that open defecation was still rampant in sectors 4, 5, 8, 9 and 10 which is occupied by a lot of shanties. Out of the 107 public and community toilets, only four are situated in the interiors of these slums
, including the public toilet in Sector 5 shanty and the three mobile community toilets at sectors 5 and 8.
With a general resistance to using the toilets and the ‘distance factor’ hindering their way, the women residing in these slums said that they would have used the toilets had they been located closer to their shanties
