Kerala,which has taken pride in implementing several projects with government money,has finally decided to seek private investment to provide better sanitation facilities.

A highlight of the one-year action plan of the Congress government is the formation of a toilet company with private participation. Modelled after the Cochin International Airport Limited,a successful public-private participation venture,the toilet construction company would give 26 per cent stake to the government.

Apart from that,the government plans to have three more PPP ventures: for constructing and running bus shelters,clearing garbage in major cities,and distributing filtered drinking water in selected towns.

Releasing the action plan,Chief Minister Oommen Chandy said the companies for toilets and bus shelters would be allowed to run shops to generate revenue. The action plan included preliminary surveys for several mega projects such as a high-speed rail corridor,Kochi-Coimbatore industrial corridor,mono rail for Thiruvanthapuram.
