PILIBHIT: Upadhi Post Graduate Degree College in Pilibhit is 50 years old but till date it has no toilet facilities for its students. More than the boys, girl students have a tough time when they have to answer a call of nature. As a result, they are forced to use the college field to ease themselves with their friends holding up their 'dupattas' to give them a semblance of privacy in the open field.

Amit Gangwar and Narendra Goswami, students of this college who had recently appeared in the MA final examinations, told TOI that they had requisitioned the information from college principal under an RTI regarding the facility of toilets provided to girl students, number of classrooms available and the ratio between students and teachers about a year ago. However, they are yet to get a reply. Their application, filed under RTI Act, is pending with state information commissioner in Lucknow.

But UP govt. also provide other facilities to girls/women. The Uttar Pradesh government has started to set up incinerators for disposal of sanitary napkins in 300 government inter colleges for women in the State as part of its Rs. 60-crore toilet block project in colleges in 73 districts.


Though the State government has put on priority improving toilets in all government schools, particularly those for women, Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav liked the unique idea of having a toilet block each in women’s colleges equipped with an incinerator and a water purifier-cum-cooler as suggested by Sulabh International.
