Glance at the sanitation and water status in India would reveal that: Almost 50% of households even in big cities like Bangalore and Hyderabad do not have sewerage connection; Only 21% of waste water is treated, as compared to 57% in South Africa; In about 80% of the rural households, the average water supply is less than 5 hours a day and over 70% of the household do not have access to toilets or sewerage system; Out of 600,000 villages 350,000 open defecation takes place every day.

India accounts for 58% of the world’s population of open defecators. With the current rate of progress the nation is feared to miss the sanitation target by 32 years. The Indian Minister for Rural Development and Drinking Water Supply and Sanitation Jairam Ramesh too says, "Sanitation is the biggest blot on the human development portfolio in India, as the sanitation situation is disastrous."

Given this dismal scenario, it seems ironical that the states have been unable to utilize even the available funds. For example, in the last fiscal year, under Total Sanitation Campaign for Rural Areas, 27 billion rupees remained unutilized whereas 19 billion rupees were not used in the Rural Water Program me. Consequently, the nation is paying the cost for not spending on drinking water and sanitation in the form of loss of working days, expenditure on healthcare, school drop outs, malnutrition, anemia, and infant/child mortality.

"Every year thousands of children die in India due to a lack of adequate sanitation and clean water."

Even the National Sample Survey Office (NSSO), Government of India data of 2008-09 indicates that the poor sections of society, especially in the rural areas, are four times less likely to have access to improved sanitation facilities i.e. having a toilet at home, in comparison to the rich population.

According to the WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme, India has provided sanitation cover to over 200 million people between 1995 and 2008. However, the progress has been rated as highly inequitable as it displays exclusion of certain caste and communities. A research by Water Aid illustrates that the Scheduled Castes in particular are denied access to water facilities. Even the children from scheduled caste communities are not allowed to drink water from common water sources in schools or use the toilet facility if available. To draw the attention of the government towards this crisis, WaterAid has joined hands with End Water Poverty Campaign (a campaign involving 190 organizations all across the globe to end the water and sanitation crisis). Together Water Aid had organized 50 ‘Crisis Talk Events’ in 20 nations on World Toilet Day 19 Nov 2011. These talks focused on various dynamics of the issue.
