Out of the 1.2 billion people globally who do not have access to toilets for defecation, more than 60% of them live in India. Despite India’s remarkable economic progress in recent years, expanding access to toilets remains one of the biggest developmental challenges
for the country. More than 1000 Indian children die each day of diarrhea, hepatitis and other
related diseases caused by ground and surface water contamination due to improper sanitation.The appalling shortage of sanitation made Shrachi join hands with Stone India Ltd to install BIO-Toilets for their workers and labourers at Renaissance Township, Burdwan. Also, Shrachi Group believe that “Charity begins at home” and the hygiene and well-being of their labourers is one of their prime responsibilities.
What is a BIO-Toilet?
Aerobic Bio Toilet uses a Aerobic Bio digestion process through a culture of multiple strains of
bacteria which eats up the solid waste and converts it into neutral and nonpathogenic water which can be disposed of anywhere as it does not contaminate the ground or surface water or the environment in any way. Low use of water is recommended. It is easy to installed and can be relocated easily.
Shrachi, a Rs.1000 cr Group of Eastern India, with diversified interest in the field of Real Estate, Heavy Engineering Projects, Agricultural Machinery, Stationary products etc has tied up with Stone India Ltd to market the BIO-Toilet across the nation through Shrachi’s wide spread dealer network. Stone India Ltd, based in Kolkata, with 80 years of expertise in Engineering products, developed this Aerobic Bio Toilet, with the support from Ministry of Science and Technology, GOI. The association between Stone India & Shrachi will help the product to reach rural India efficiently.The Shrachi team has already started to reach various UBL, Panchayats, and the other implementing authorities to promote BIO-Toilets and improve sanitation. We strive to make this country an OPEN-DEFECATION FREE country sooner than expected. Shri Rabi Ranjan Chattopadhyay, Chairman BDA, graced the occasion along with the other dignitaries and gave ‘Swachhalaya’ all his support in future endeavours.
