According to a report by the UN India has the maximum number of people which defecate in the open. Almost 60 crores of 131 crore people in India defecate in the open which is nearly 50 percent of the country’s population. A study suggests that out of the total population of the world that defecates in open 60 percent of them live in India. These numbers highlight the urgent need of eliminating open defecation as it results in the spread of various diseases as well as leads to heinous crimes being committed against women.
Hence, creating India an open defecation free state is one of the major objectives of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan. In order to achieve it, the Modi government has vowed to install 7.5 crore toilets across the country by Oct 2019. To achieve its aim the government has launched the Pradhan Mantri Toilet Nirmaan Yojana or the Swachh Bharat Shauchalaya Scheme under which the government will provide a sum of Rs 12000 for the construction of free toilets in houses which don’t have toilets.
