Thoothukudi Corporation - Swachh Bharat Mission

Thoothukudi Corporation has embarked on a journey to transform the city in to the cleanest city in the country by 2017. In order to achieve this feat, it is important to eliminate open defecation and promote healthy sanitation practices. According to 2011 census, Thoothukudi has around 20000 households without an attached toilet. To promote construction of toilets in such house holds the Government of India and Government of Tamil Nadu are providing grants for construction of IHHLs. However, this amount is not sufficient to construct a proper sanitary toilet.

The Construction cost for a sanitary toilet varies from Rs 22000 to 26000 depending on the sewerage treatment system. While the Government contribution is around Rs 8000, the rest has to be borne by the beneficiary. Since most of these beneficiaries are very poor they are not able to bear the balance contribution amount. Many beneficiaries are not willing to construct toilets due to this reason and therefore the practice of open defecation still continues.

The Swachh Bharat Mission encourages Private Sector participation in Capex (Capital Expenditure) and Opex (Operation and Maintenance). Many PSUs and private companies are funding toilet construction under their CSR activities. In Thoothukudi for the current financial year we have a target of 4382 IHHLs. To meet this ambitious target, we need financial support from donors.
