Karnataka's mobile fever clinic, 'sthree toilet' wins national award


Bengaluru, Oct 15 (IANS): The mobile fever clinic and the 'sthree toilet' of the state-run KSRTC have won the national award under the 'CSR for social development' category amid the coronavirus pandemic, an official said on Wednesday.

"As our staff is committed to be corona warriors in the pandemic situation, I dedicate the national public undertakings award to it, especially to those who lost their life to the infection," Shivayogi Kalasad, Managing Director, Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC), said on the occasion.

Kalasad received the award in a virtual ceremony held in Mumbai earlier in the day.

"The award is the result of our diligent work although the corporation is going through a difficult situation due to Covid-induced restrictions on movement of people to maintain social distancing and contain the virus spread," said Kalasad in a statement here.

Chief minister B.S. Yediyurappa had flagged off the mobile fever clinic on May 11 in this tech hub to combat the state's efforts in its fight against Covid-19.

The makeshift clinic was set up in an old bus remodelled to collect and test swab samples for Covid or other diseases.

"The award will encourage our employees to work more towards social commitment," Kalasad noted.

The 'sthree toilets', rolled out in the city on August 27, were built by converting the transporter's old buses which had been withdrawn from service.

Operated on solar power, the toilet-bus has been stationed at the central bus stand in the city centre (Majestic area). They have Indian and western toilets, sensor lights and diaper changing areas for babies.

    Just by converting one bus into toilet they get the award and it will not continue further. Such bus toilets are to be installed near the slums. I see lots of slum women walk kilometers with water bottles in the morning everyday. If the Government thinks about them and solve their difficulty would be good.
