Sanitation drive: A policy mismatch

Sanitation drive: A policy mismatch

Although the number of rural households without toilets has dropped from 78% in 2001 to 27% as of 2 February 2012, usage remains a problem. A review, using government data from the TSC website, of the programme by the Accountability Initiative, Centre for Policy Research, in Delhi shows no correlation between the amount of funds being spent in a state and improvement there. This is the first of a four-part series leading up to the Union budget due on 16 March.
