What will you do if there comes an urge to use toilet,while you are enjoying a trip in Kerala or travelled half way to somewhere?
Without any hesitation,approach the nearby hotel or restaurant and use the toilet facility there.
Kerala government is implementing this new project,which will allow people to use the toilet facilities of more than 20,000 restaurants and hotels for free.
Thus, people can now use toilets in hotels and restaurants across Kerala registered under the newly launched ‘Kloo’ (Kerala+Loo) project.
Kerala Hotel and Restaurant Association (KHRA) has announced a joint venture with the state government titled ‘Kloo Project’ (Kerala+Loo). Hotels and restaurants that are willing to provide their toilet facilities for free to people will be registered with the project.
A app named ‘Kloo’ will be launched by the end of February by Minister of Industries E P Jayarajan for the ease of the project.this application will be made available on Android and iOS phones. The GPS-driven app will provide the exact location and other details pertaining to the hotel.
“Before registering the hotels and restaurants, a thorough inspection was carried for a month. The selection process was based on different factors like how many times the toilet is cleaned in a day, electricity, water provision, effective ventilation, etc. The hotels who didn’t match the criteria and wanted to be a part of the Kloo project were given a few days to improve the conditions of their toilets”, an official said.
In case of sanitation,Kerala has a high standard and the state with a population of 3.3 crore was the third state to attain the title of open defecation free (ODF)in 2016 . In the same year the state launched its own initiative ‘Haritha Keralam’ (Green Kerala) to give its Swachh quotient a push.
