Conceptualised along the Japanese idea of ‘space saving':Bangalore-based Asipac, a provider of concepts, planning and marketing solutions to the real estate market, along with over 20 builders (domestic and international) are planning India's biggest private sector housing venture—the Rs 62,000-crore Satyagriha Project, which proposes to build 342,000 homes in the next six years across India.
Technology to save electricity and water:The houses are fitted with sensors to conserve electricity and water. Bathrooms have shower cubicles split into a wet and dry area. These have weight sensors—when a person steps into the wet area the water starts, and turns off the moment he steps into the dry area. The toilet bowls are fitted with bum-washers, which too conserves water.
The Satyagriha consortium plans to customise these technologies to Indian requirements
Dear Amit, (Amit Bagaria is the chairman of Asipac) simple or hi-tech, no bum-washer for me. I simple Indian toilet. It saves space and costs less. To save the water, i will stop enjoying washing my bum. Self-control! I am also follower of Mahatmaji! For my foreign friends i will put this board:
What about you? Do you prefer (hi-tech or simple) western toilet or Indian toilet? Please, let me know in the comments.
