U’khand’s 8,000 in 20 days

Constructing 8,000 toilets within 20 days, Udham Singh Nagar district of Uttarakhand has created a new record under the Swachh Bharat Mission. It was enlisted in Limca Book of records for the largest number of toilets constructed within so little time.

The district requires 76,016 rural toilets in order to be declared Open Defecation Free, of which 64,613 have already been constructed. ‘Swajal Pariyojna’, a World Bank funded project, executed the construction work. Rudrapur, Jaspur, Kashipur and Gadarpur, are already ODF. Khatima, Sitarganj and Bazpur blocks are also expected to be declared ODF soon.
