Swachh Bharat Mission Urban Implementation Status
Individual Household Toilets
At the end of Jan 2018, there had been significant progress on construction of IHHTs under Swachh Bharat Mission (U). About 41% of the 7.69 million IHHT applications, or 3.6 million IHHTs, have been constructed and about 25%, i.e. 0.35 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 234,653 seats classified as public toilets and community toilets have been constructed and an additional 1,876 seats are under construction in this category.
