Its simple. Indians love return offers/ incentives, thus we pay them for using toilets. This will encourage them to use toilets.

Hi Christopher, yes there are loopholes and I have mentioned it earlier also that to do a field research etc I will need capital and thus I have not been able to do that so far. About partnering I have mentioned it above that if companies like the Reliance group take it up it can happen. I don't think you know the company I'm talking about. I have not spoken about the small aspects because I'm trying to show you people a large picture by not including the small bits and prices like maintainance. But ya when it comes to maintainance the person wont get paid if he has not kept the toilet clean for the next person. If you leave it dirty the money that you were supposed to receive goes to the person who will wash the toilet at the end of the day as a tip. I shall re write the entire thing once the feedback session ends. Thank you all for the feedback. It was really helpful. Glad I got to interact with such beautiful people

It is quiet freasable. Provided that these toilets will be a big jump for people in those areas. This is a good solution for urban India. In the rural sector we need to teach them how to keep the toilets clean rather than letting the toilet clean them selves. And I'm not too sure if this sort of technology will be something the big investors will be wanting to invest in for the areas where people don't know the value of it.
