Thiruvanathapuram: Electronic public-toilet for ladies, a first in the state of Kerala was inaugurated at Kozhikode on Monday by A.K. Premajam, the Mayor. The toilet is located at the Oyitty Road in Kozhikode was developed by Dea Celera Electronic Devices, a Technopark based company.

This can be said an answer to the prayers of many harried by the absence of hygienic public toilets. Described as the first Indian version of the European public toilets, these can be a one-stop solution to overcome the hygiene-related issues associated with the maintenance and use of manual public toilets.

Dea Celera Electronic Devices, in association with various local bodies and the Tourism Department, is all set to launch electronic toilets in selected cities.

"Electronic toilet is a concept developed in Europe, where many countries have these pay-and-use toilets with multiple facilities. What we have done is 'Indianise' this technology, by making it cost-effective and conducive to our environment," says Manohar Varghese, Senior Manager, e-governance and media solutions, Rain Concert Technologies, a parent company of Dea Celera.

Electronic toilets are fully automated, portable, pay-and-use toilets that work through a fusion of electrical and mechanical inputs and information technology. Each Delight toilet has an automated payment collection, door opening, flushing, sterilizing and cleaning system. As soon as you drop the coins, the electronic door will open and with it the light and exhaust fan will get switched on automatically. After you use and exit the toilet, the toilet flushing and floor cleaning are automatically done. Delight toilets uses 40 watts of power and 1,008 litres of water for 168 users.
