As an impediment for developments in the so called Emerging City of Panvel, sanitation has become a crucial lacking point. Bringing another example for irresponsible authorities, public toilets and latrines are in ruins. Public toilets are made in important junctions and circles of the city, but are ill maintained and no one cleans the area. These toilets are in ruins for a longer time and have faced a lot of criticism from residents.

Filthy surrounding of toilets prevents people from approaching the area. Two important public toilets are facing some crucial problems. A toilet that located in Shivaji Chowk is the crucial one, as there is no one clean or at least look after its needs. It has become a place of public trouble, rather than a daily need. Its proximity towards Tehsil office, Police station and Municipal Buildings, increases the need to solve the problem immediately. The building is damaged from many sides and raises many health problems due to its filty conditions.

Another toilet located near to ST bus stand, which offers a crucial crowd, said to the most ill treated. The main victims are always women, as they have to avoid cleanliness surroundings. Its proximity towards the bus stand increases the importance of this toilet. Panvel is projected as a Corridor and transportation hub in the coming future. This explains the crowd in the bus stand, which is huge when compared to another bus stand in the city.

Hasty Smell shared by these toilets is irking residents, but are not able to raise voice uniformly. But many residents complained to various authorities andmunicipality, but actions are yet to be done. Health Department (sanitation) of Panvel Municipality is responsible for maintaining and cleaning toilets.

Mohd. Khattb, a resident of Panvel irked with damaged toilets, said “I used this toilet once it was built, but later I never used it, as it always produces bad smell. It is situated in heart of Panvel and ignored by officials. Conditions of toilets near to bus stand are even worse and buildings have been damaged for many months.”

Arshiya Sheikh, a resident of Old Panvel, said “I travel by buses every day, it is important for us to have toilets in bus stand, especially for those long distance travelers. But toilets in Panvel ST Stand seem to be worst in this region. I can’t even go near to this toilet.”

Dileep Kadam, Chief Health inspector Panvel Muncipality, said “we are cleaning the toilets and are ready to keep the city clean. If any special complaints emerges, we will surely look into the matter”
