The washrooms are either not maintained properly or lack the basic infrastructure. This makes it difficult for differently-abled people to access them. Geeta, Principal of Samarthanam Trust for Special Needs School, said that such washrooms should be made more disabled-friendly. They need sidebars and ramps to make them fully accessible. There should be a minimum of one washroom each for men and for women. Differently-abled people said that the metro washrooms need to have more ramps and should be cleaner.
