This is a list of Indian states and territories ranked before the availability of toilet facilities per household. Figures are from the 2011 census of India.[1] In a massive cleanliness drive after the election of Narendra Modi in 2014, over 90 million toilets have been built over the course of 4 years, ferociously taking India towards an open defecation free country.[2][3][4] Modi's government also has been building toilets in people's individual households.[5] Google is helping Modi and his government set up toilets across the nation, too.[6]

Some states and union teritory like Gujrat, Himachal pradesh, Haryana, Kerala, Dadra nagar haveli have 100 percent access to toilet.
