On October 2, 2014, government launched the Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan with much fanfare. Two years after the status of PM Narendra Modi’s flagship programme is yet to yield applauding results, especially in rural areas and bottom five states surveyed in 2014 even as the government feel that performance is on track to meet the Swachh Bharat Mission Gramin targets well before October  2, 2019.

The rural household toilet coverage has increased from 42% in 2014 to 55.34% in 2016.

According to government data, as many as 2,42,57,960 household toilets have been built in two years’ time. As many as 97,478 villages have been declared open defecation free(38,439 verified) apart from 1,549 ODF villages along Ganga. Among the ODF villages is naxal bastion Malkapur as well.

Here’s a report card:

Number of households with toilets:      9,27,51,791
