Clean Public Toilet With Attached Bathrooms in New Delhi
Anyone can have an urge to freshen up or have a need to use a toilet while traveling to any city. When you are in America and nature calls, you know where to go but when it comes to Delhi, you don’t know where to go because Delhi being the top metropolitan city of India is unable to provide clean or hygienic toilets to the general public till now. Some delhites use to grab a burger from nearby McDonald’s and sit on its toilet seat and others order a cold drink in a restaurant like Shudh in Karol Bagh and use its toilet while on their shopping spree or while on their journey to visit famous historical monuments in Delhi. But there is some good news for delhites and for foreign travelers spending a vacation in India and it is that Delhi government and MCD are investing approximately 1 crore INR on a monthly basis for construction of eco-friendly world-class hygienic toilets near various marketplaces and shopping centers in Delhi and all this is happening because of CommonWealth Games in Delhi which will start from October 3, 2010.
But the bad news is that MCD has decided not to open the newly constructed toilets with bathrooms for general public until the CWG 2010 start date. It means that these public amenities are locked till now and will be available to delhites and visitors to Delhi from the October month of this year, but you don’t need to worry because I am a citizen of Delhi since my birth and I know about many places which I going to list below and also in my next hub where you can go and freshen up. I have also included exact addresses with interactive maps, which you can use via your smart phones while you are traveling in Delhi.
So here are two clean public toilets with attached bathrooms in New Delhi:

Public restrooms at IGI are eco-friendly and hygienic as experienced by me and as reported by several people I know who have visited IGI Airport in the recent past. These public toilets also consist of attached bathrooms with shower facilities and also baby nappy changing rooms.

P.S: Please don’t use toilet facilities in Old Delhi Railway Station, New Delhi Railway Station, or in Nizammudin Railway Station because these toilet facilities are really dirty and unhygienic and you can end up in acquiring urinary tract infection or some other urinary tract disease, as these toilets are used by thousands of people in single day and despite regular cleaning of these toilets by the railway staff, they remain filthy, dirty, and stinking with bad smell.
