The SDMC on Tuesday said it has acted on the advice of Lt Governor Anil Baijal, who had asked it to explore this idea.
"Acting on the advice of the Lt Governor, the SDMC has made it mandatory for all hotels and restaurants located in south Delhi to give full access to the general public to these toilets.
"The establishment of these restaurants have also been given discretion to charge upto Rs 5 per usage to cover their charges towards maintenance and cleaning," the SDMC said in a statement.
"At one stroke this smart move will now make available an additional over 3,500 toilets accessible to public," it added.
