The East civic body has built 95 community toilets and 477 public toilets to declare itself open defecation-free.
The new Commissioner of the East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) has given officials one week to fix around 60% of toilets which are in an unusable state.
“We are putting up mobile toilets in areas where there are not enough public toilets,” said Kaur.
Out of these, five community toilets and 135 public toilets were built under the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan scheme.
Of the 4,203 local bodies surveyed, the East civic body ranked 341 in the last Swachh Survekshan Survey.
