Angry 5 star toilets : Rs.17.5 lakhs per shitpot in Yojana Bhavan !!

Yes Sirs.. Rs. 35 lakhs for 2 toilets in Planning Commision's office, I shit you not.

Ever wonder why our economy is going down the toilet ?? The answer comes directly from the horse's ass :

Quote:
Planning Commission spends Rs. 35 lakh to renovate two toilets in Delhi

Press Trust of India | Updated: June 06, 2012 09:33 IST




Planning Commission, which is mired in a controversy over what constitutes the poverty line, has spent a whopping Rs. 35 lakh for renovation of two toilets in New Delhi, an RTI reply has revealed.

The Commission, which came up with a controversial poverty line figure of Rs. 28 per day for an individual, has spent Rs. 30 lakh for the renovation of the toilets on the lines of Indira Gandhi International Airport.

An additional Rs. 5.19 lakh was spent on installing door access control system for the toilets at Yojana Bhawan.

The access control system will mean only those people who have been provided smart cards can use these swanky toilets.

"Cost of installation of Door Access Control System is Rs. 5,19,426 for two toilets. Cost of renovation of two toilets where door access control system is installed is Rs. 30,00,305," the reply to activist Subhash Agrawal said.

According to the RTI reply, 60 smart cards have been issued to the officials of the Planning Commission which have to be used to get access to the toilets.

The Commission had also decided to install CCTV cameras in the corridors leading to these toilets as the officials said there were instances of pilferage in the toilets.

Estimates have been sought from the CPWD.

Apart from the poverty line estimates issue, Planning Commission Deputy Chairman Montek Singh Ahluwalia had come under criticism after a newspaper, based on RTI reply, reported that foreign travel expense incurred by him between May and October, 2011 was a staggering Rs. 2.02 lakh per day.

Another report said that he undertook 42 official trips (between June 2004-January 2011) of 274 days at a cost of Rs. 2.34 crore.

Refuting the inferences drawn in the later editorials, Mr Ahluwalia had said that foreign travels are necessary for discharge of official duties.

The Commission officials, in a note on renovation, had observed, "With the approval of JS (admn), CPWD(E) was requested to submit estimates for SITC for door access control system and CCTV cameras. However Executive Engineer CPWD(E) has forwarded estimates for installation of door access control system in two toilets (one each on first and second floor) RBI side, Yojana Bhawan."

"Things like disturbing/breaking of sanitary appliances are taking place frequently. It may not be out of place to mention that very high dignitaries visit Yojana Bhawan in connection with official work in addition to this non-official members of different committees visit Yojana Bhawan for attending meetings," the officials said in another note.

Disturbing of sanitary fittings or non-functional sanitary fittings portray a very untidy picture of planning commission to the visiting dignitaries, it said.

Another note proposing the upgradation of toilets last year shows that the two toilets to be renovated are part of a pilot project and after execution of work, decision on renovation of other toilets would be taken.

According to the note, it was desired that three other toilets of the Planning Commission may also be renovated on the same lines.

Building toilet is good thing. Construction probably cost 15 lacks but add to that the comission and contractors profit, I am not surprised it cost 35 lacs.

Montek Singh Ahluwalia said that it was a planned expense, and that the work was carried out by CPWD and no outside contractors were involved

And you need an access card to visit those loos. I wonder if they are selling the access cards - like, a 5-star version of Sulabh Shauchalaya

Well they have installed this toilet, so obviously they need to then install sekoority systum, cctv camera, one watchman for each toilet and then some accesories like multiple flat panel 3d tvs and so on. Itna kharcha to ho hi jaata hai.

What is the need of putting CCTV inside the toilets ?? Just install 1 watchman outside, pay him well. Maybe 3 watchmen for 24 hours + 1 reliever. Still they will save big money on it.


35 lakhs !! In Surat I can buy a 3BHK with that and have some leftover.. and these guys are simply crapping on it

Abey, you don't know. In yojana bhavan all the watchman themselves are chors of the highest order. That's why there are hidden cameras everywhere, more so in the ladies toilet because montek singh personally takes care of the secoority in the ladies toilet.

I know how much comission needs to paid to CPWD and PWD....... CPWD does get all the work done by contractors. They dont have their own construction crews......

My family does contracting for CPWD and defense. I know first hand......

Entry to the toilets is 'exclusive--------that means 'modern caste-ism'!
And these seculars blame us Hindus for casteism.
