Swachh Bharat Mission Urban Implementation Status
Individual Household Toilets
At the end of March 2017, there had been significant progress on construction of IHHTs under Swachh Bharat Mission (U). About 40% of the 7.69 million IHHT applications, or 3.11 million IHHTs, have been constructed and about 25%, i.e. 1.93 million IHHTs, are in progress. 35% of the total applications received are under various stages – pending for verification, approval and construction. The data available from the SBM Directorate shows that of the 31 states, only 3 states have completed 100% construction of the approved IHHTs and with nil to very minimal IHHTs to be started. These states are Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.
Public and Community Toilets
Under SBMU, one of the important components is provision of public sanitation facilities in the form of public toilets and community toilets. Households which do not have space to construct an IHHT depend on community toilets. Under the Mission, approximately 115,786 seats classified as public toilets and community toilets have been constructed and an additional 125,036 seats are under construction in this category.
About 25% of the total seats (public and community toilets) which are constructed and in progress are in Tamil Nadu. The reasons for high demand of public toilets and community toilets seats can be found only through further investigation. Madhya Pradesh stands second in term of the total seats public toilet and community toilet seats with 12% of the total seats in the country, followed by Delhi with 11% of the total seats.
