Four years of Swachh Bharat: Open defecation down 26%, but toilet use doesn't match construction spree

Almost a 23 percent of those who own a latrine defecated in the open, a figure that has remained unchanged since the Swachh Bharat Mission was launched in 2014. This can mostly be attributed to deeply entrenched beliefs about caste “impurity” associated with emptying latrine pits, the paper concluded.
