Chennai: As part of making villages in Tamil Nadu 100 percent hygienic, the Tamil Nadu Government plans to construct two integrated sanitary complexes each for men in 770 village panchayats of the state at a cost of Rs 35 crore.

A government release said this move comes in the backdrop of last year's announcement by the government of renovating existing women's sanitary complexes at a cost of Rs 170 crore.

It said Chief Minister Jayalalitha had issued orders to construct two integrated sanitary complexes in the 770 village panchayats across the State, meeting the long pending demand.

Each complex would comprise six Indian style toilets, one western closet, baby friendly toilets and a bathroom. A committee would be appointed to maintain the complexes, it said.
