"I inserted a coin to use the toilet, after a while it asked me to insert coin again, then I inserted one more coin, it asked me same to 'insert coin' for the third time, then I understood there is some technical issue with the machine. It is so disappointing," said Prathima Reddy, CA.

Speaking of e-toilets, Ravi Kumar, Deputy Commissioner, GHMC, said, "The city has around 23 e-toilets working actively. Water issues were raised at some locations and we started addressing the concerns. We also have e-toilets running with good profits. Women are responding positively on it.
