The "Loo Review" Campaign was launched under the Swachh Bharat Mission-Urban (SBM-U). Its main objective is to provide sanitation coverage for achieving Open Defecation Free (ODF) status all over India. With around 3400 cities already having achieved ODF status, and other cities gearing up towards the same, now there is need to ensure that the ODF status is sustained through continuous usage and proper maintenance of public toilets.
Chetan Krishnaswamy, Director Public Policy, Google, said "Google is a committed partner in achieving the Government's vision of a Swachh Bharat. 'Public toilets near me' is a feature that is supported across Google Maps, Search and the  Assistant. In close partnership with the MoHUA, we have mapped toilets across 500 cities in India in the last year alone. Through the #LooReview campaign we are engaging our enthusiastic Local Guides community in India to further increase the awareness on public toilets in the country, and help citizens discover clean and well-maintained options in their vicinity."
