Yes indeed swach bharat by 2019 is the goal but that also means to monitor the construction of the toilets and their usage as mentioned above together with behavioural change. In some areas, as I have seen during the field visits, the external structure is constructed to obtain the fund without constructing the pit and many such toilets are used as store rooms. It is pertinent to setup mobile texting to report on such implementation. Project Well with local NGO, Aqua Welfare Society of WB, has a surveillance program developed with water projects in two districts of arsenic contaminated villages of West Bengal and now planning for honey-combed toilets in the same area. With the web-based monitoring and tracking system this program will definitely help in enhancing the health of the villagers. Proud of the field team who are dedicated to their work (http://www.projectwellusa.org/)
