      Total Sanitation Campaign (TSC)
IEC Warehouse

      Total Sanitation Campaign is a comprehensive programme to ensure sanitation facilities in rural areas with broader goal to eradicate the practice of open defecation. TSC as a part of reform principles was initiated in 1999 when Central Rural Sanitation Programme was restructured making it demand driven and people centered. It follows a principle of “low to no subsidy” where a nominal subsidy in the form of incentive is given to rural poor households for  construction of toilets.  TSC gives strong emphasis on Information,  Education and Communication   (IEC), Capacity Building and Hygiene  Education for effective behaviour change  with involvement of PRIs, CBOs,  and NGOs etc. The key intervention areas are  Individual household latrines  (IHHL), School Sanitation and Hygiene Education  (SSHE), Community  Sanitary Complex, Anganwadi toilets supported by Rural  Sanitary Marts  (RSMs) and Production Centers (PCs).

            The main goal of the GOI is to eradicate the practice of open  defecation  by 2010. To give fillip to this endeavor, GOI has launched Nirmal  Gram  Puraskar to recognize the efforts in terms of cash awards for fully  covered PRIs  and those individuals and institutions who have contributed significantly in  ensuring full sanitation coverage in their area of operation. The project is being implemented in rural areas taking district as a unit of implementation.
