With India, gearing up to achieve the objectives of “Clean India campaign” it is inevitable that a proven self-sustained model is available in India to address the ensuing demand. Having been in the sanitation sector since the past eight years, we have reckoned the fact that Eram Scientific Solutions should drive a revolution to adopt futuristic self-sustaining and resource generating sanitation infrastructure for the common man.
About eToilet (Patent Pending)
eToilet is an innovatively designed and engineered sanitation model that involves unmanned operations, clean and hygienic facilities, easy and continual operation of the toilets while minimizing unnecessary maintenance costs. The eToilets incorporate a full-cycle approach in sustainable sanitation by integrating electrical, mechanical and web-mobile technologies. eToilets have multiple revenue options which ensures sustainability of operations.
Made of Stainless Steel/Powder coated mild steel, eToilets have electronic systems for enhancing user experience and for tracking the health status of eToilets. eToilets have automated access control systems using either coin based entry or switch entry for free access, sensor enabled water minimization, self-washing and floor wash mechanisms.
eToilets have customized variants for the General Public, eToilets for Schools, Communities and Slums, controlled premises such as hospitals, IT parks, commercial spaces, factories and She Toilets for women.

The interiors of eToilet provide a high ambience in terms of look, feel and functionality. The well-lit interiors with LED lights glows only when a person enters and has ample natural ventilation as well as offers privacy and safety.
These sleek and modular, unmanned self-cleaning eToilets have simple user interfaces which ensures that the eToilets are clean and hygienic for every user. The eToilet has a facility of pre-flushing before entering, automatic flushing once usage is done, in-built water tanks, sensors for water and electricity conservation, automatic platform cleaning and power back-up with coin operated/free entry.
The eToilets are connected over a GPRS network, which ensure real-time monitoring of the usage and health status of the eToilets. This can be viewed and managed over a web interface for ensuring minimal downtime and standardized maintenance operations. A dedicated team of Service Engineers attend to technical troubleshooting of the eToilets.
The eToilet, though it has integrated several electronic technologies for its smooth operations, does not provide any complex electronic interface for the common man. The electronic systems are purely utilized for effective management of the eToilets.
The eToilets incorporate a full-cycle approach in sustainable sanitation by integrating electrical, mechanical and web-mobile technologies.
Eram Scientific carries out projects involving large-scale deployment of eToilets on a turn-key basis. Eram Scientific undertakes supply, installations, commissioning and maintenance of eToilets. It has a robust customer service mechanism to ensure that the eToilets are maintained clean and hygienic for constant public use, beyond the installation stage. It also envisages innovative revenue streams by way of advertisement income and user charges, so as to make eToilets self-sustaining in the long run.
Over and above the utility aspect of eToilet, the Company has also integrated various technology enabled features for enhancing the both the user and Client experience. Leveraging the GPRS based tracking facility of the eToilets, Eram has developed a unique concept of CeTI, which has been a distinguishing feature of public eToilets unlike its conventional counterparts. delightbharath.com provides information on the performance of eToilets with individual login access to Clients such a Municipal Corporations, Govt. Agencies etc. It provides a host of real-time data on the performance of eToilets like number of usages, timestamp of usages, number of coins collected, water low indication, flush counts, complaint registration, and report generation along with graphical representation of these data.
eToilet Mobile App
Eram Scientific also launched a new eToilet Mobile App for electronic Toilets in India, as part of establishing a new Connected eToilet Infrastructure (CeTI). The eToilet App is freely downloadable for Android users from the Google Play Store by typing the keyword “etoilets”. Its unique features include locating the nearest eToilets via Map & Address Listings, understanding the mode of operations, mode of access and information on facilities such as napkin vending machine, incinerator etc., and sharing feedback on the user experience of eToilet along with image uploading. Through this App, the public can also suggest new places for eToilets, if it’s not available there.
With the launch of the eToilet Mobile App, the benefits will trickle down to the general public more easily through their smart devices. The eToilet App and CeTI are unique attempts to bring in the novel technology concepts like Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data etc. for revolutionizing the sanitation sector in the Country.
Technology can show its miracles in the whole WASH sector. We have started with the frontend, the toilet. Now the focus will be on technology application in the treatment part, then the integration of the toilet and treatment, making it a single, compact solution that is scalable. Then comes the water segment, where technology can be employed for its conservation, treatment.
The ultimate goal would be to integrate all these elements with the power of technology, with focus on the Millennium Development Goals.
