A city in India, is trying to clean up the streets by paying people to use public toilets.
The Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) has decided to give residents one rupee ($0.01) every time they visit a public toilet in an attempt to keep them away from open areas and public walls, which often smell of urine.
AMC health officials said that the campaign will be tested in 67 public facilities around the city. If proven successful, the project will be implemented in all 300 public toilets.
The move is the latest effort to encourage people to use the public toilets after the government announced that it will be cracking down on people urinating in public.
Many people however, consider toilets unhygienic and prefer to defecate far away from home. Nearly 594 million people or nearly half the population defecate in public.
