The campaign plans to cover a wide range of communities, from those living in remote rural villages to small towns to slums in major cities low performing states where per capita availability is very low, open defecations is very common and no access to hygiene education.
The campaign will have preference for the following states:
|States with % of non-availability of Toilet Facility: 2011*|
*Source: Census data 2011 related to percentage of households with no penetration of toilets
Within these states, specific village/block/districts will be identified with reference to:
- The areas faced with the problem of open defecation as per Census data,2011
- Where people do not have access to improved sanitation.
- Slums and JJ Cluster in urban areas where water supplies are not separated and facilities are often expensive.
- Where cultural beliefs prevent people from using toilet latrines or practicing good hygiene
