Gujarat and Andhra Pradesh have met the Swachh Bharat mission targets three years ahead  in September this year with Gujarat fulfilling the target of 4,06,388 toilets and Andhra Pradesh building 1,93,426 toilets in urban areas and have declared them Open Defecation Free in urban areas.

Minister of Urban Development M.Venkaiah Naidu reviewed the progress of the mission in urban areas today.

During the two years of Swachh Bharat Mission, 22,97,389 individual household toilets have so far been constructed in urban areas of the country as against the  five year mission target of 66,42,221 such toilets to be built by 2019. With 35% of mission target being met in two years i.e 40% of the mission duration, construction of toilets meant for ending Open Defecation in urban areas is broadly on course.

Other leading performers are Kerala having built 62,450 which comes to 68% of the mission target of 90,986, Chattisgarh-1,83,726 (61% of 3,00,000), Madhya Pradesh -2,34,377 (46% of 5,12,389) and Tamil Nadu -2,57,781 (43% of mission target of 6,02,029 toilets).

The States that have met over 30% of mission targets are: Maharashtra -33% having built 2,07,888 toilets out of the mission target of 6,29,819, Uttar Pradesh-31% (2,53,979/8,28,237), Karnataka-31% (1,09,704/3,50,000) and Jharkhand -30% (47,968/ 1,61,713).

Telangana has met  28%  of the mission target having built 59,967 of the 2,16,075 toilets, followed by West Bengal-23% (1,20,628/5,15,419), Puducherry -22% (2,135/9,626), Punjab-19% (26,188/1,38,010).

States and Union Territories who have built less than 10% of mission targets are : Manipur (9%), Bihar (7.40%), Uttarakhand (7%), Odisha (4.40%), Mizoram (3.34%) and Arunachal Pradesh (1.60%).

Swachh Bharat Mission was launched on October 2,2014 targeting construction of 1.04 cr individual household  toilets in urban areas based on 2011 Census. Subsequently, taking in to consideration the construction of toilets during 2011-14, mission target in this regard has been revised to 66,42,221 toilets based on the assessment of States/UTs.

 

As per the revised targets 14 States and the UT of Delhi account for 80% of the target. These 15 States/UT have till September this year built 21,64,860 toilets accounting for 94% of the total toilets so far built and 32% of the total mission target. States and UTs lagging behind proportionate targets are expected to catch up as mission progresses.
