Bells and Whistles to Tackle Public Menace

The government of Rajasthan has launched a new scheme aimed at shaming people urinating in public.

The project will see volunteers armed with drums and whistles pull up those caught peeing or defecating on the streets of three dozen villages in the Jhunjhunu district of the state.

Whilst there is no law against public urination in Rajasthan, officials say offenders may be 'encouraged' to pay a fine.

Spitting, urinating and defecating in public are common in the country where half the population have no toilet at home.  

The problem has led to the spread of diseases such as tapeworm, typhoid and cholera

The scheme will also see the government handing out grants of Rs 9000 to those who wish to construct a toilet at home.
