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 (*UPDATED by 2020 survey).[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]

The Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA), is presently implementing missions like Swachh Bharat Mission (SBM), Atal Mission for Rejuvenation & Urban Transformation (AMRUT), Smart Cities Mission, and National Heritage City Development & Augmentation Yojana (HRIDAY).

Swachh Bharat Mission is a flagship mission of the Government of India and is committed to achieving total sanitation in the country. It is established that every rupee spent on sanitation has an economic return of 6 to 9 times. Under the Swachh Bharat Mission, Ministry is determined to make cities and towns open defecation free and clean by 2 October 2019 in partnership with States and ULBs. For helping them in this endeavor, the Ministry has prepared several guidelines, advisories, and handbooks for effective implementation which can be accessed from the Ministry's website. [1]

List of the Indian States and UT[edit]

An increasing trend has been seen in India with how many households have toilet facilities (46.41% in 2001, 68.9% in 2011 and 97.21% in 2018).

However, a report from National Statistical Office found this data controversial stating "More than a quarter of households surveyed in rural India (in 2018) didn't have access to a toilet."[5]

Kerala, Mizoram, and Lakshadweep State/UT have a higher number of households having toilet facilities in both 2001 and 2011 in comparison to other states. Lakshadweep has the highest households having toilet facilities 89.2% in 2001, 97.8% in 2011, and 100% in 2018.

Seven states viz. Bihar, Odisha, Assam, Goa, and Tripura are below the national estimate of 97.21% in 2018. [6] According to 2018 data, 97.21% of the country has achieved ODF Status and has full access to toilets. [6]
