Poor sanitation is one of the major factors for outbreaks of communicable diseases, which have adverse impact on human resources. In India, the percentage of households with latrines in rural area is insignificant. The GOI, under the 10th Plan aims to achieve 100 per cent coverage through the Total Sanitation Campaign. The investigation based on household data suggests the changes required at the village level in the implementation process, to achieve the set targets.
