Toilet Coverage and Sanitation Performance in India By States (2001-2011)

Sanitation coverage by state (India) in 2001 and 2011

It is widely accepted that India’s “Total Sanitation Campaign has been a failure”.

In 2001 rural sanitation coverage was 22%. In 2011, ten years of Total Sanitation Campaign (TSC) later, the Government of India claimed that coverage was 68%. But recent Census data revealed that real coverage was only 31%. This means that less than one in five toilets reportedly constructed is in place.

National protocols and guidelines for verification and certification

Definitions Verification is the process of confirming the claims of communities to have met the criteria for ODF status. Certification is the official confirmation and recognition of the ODF status of communities. Verification of communities claiming to be ODF (open defecation free) and certification of these communities are key stages in CLTS follow up and vital for quality assurance and sustainability of collective behaviour change. Carrying out follow up, verification and certification at scale is not an easy task. With more and more national governments adopting CLTS as their key approach to sanitation and including it in their policies, there is a need for streamlined guidance on monitoring and on how to conduct verification and certification.
