Kerala-based Eram Scientific Solutions, the sole manufacturers of e-toilets (electronic toilets) in the country, has deployed these automated and self-cleaning e-toilets in 411 schools in Nellore as part of the corporate social responsibility initiatives of Tata Consultancy Services.

Eram Scientific announced the world's most economically-priced e-toilet on October 1, 2014, on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti, as a foreword to the Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan program.

The school model e-toilet "e-Lite14" has automatic floor wash system, automatic ceiling light, exhaust fan, in-built sensors to conserve electricity and water, and an overhead water tank. It works on both solar and electric grid and is priced at Rs.1 lakh. It also has a one-year warranty and insurance coverage.

"We are happy in creating a profound impact on the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan by providing technology-enabled sanitation which was unheard of in the country before," said Siddeek Ahmed, chairman of the Eram Group.

Eram Scientific has deployed more than 1,200 e-toilets in 18 states in India and has received over 38 national and international awards for their innovative intervention in sanitation.
