Abstract

India's two national rural sanitation programmes (Total Sanitation Campaign / Nirmal Bharat Abhiyan), implemened by the Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation, were audited over a five year period ending in March 2014. The performance audit covered plannning, project Implementation, management of funds, Information, Education and Communication (IEC), convergence with related government programmes, and monitoring and evaluation.

While nearly 100 billion Rupees (US$ 1.5 billion) was spent, the audit concludes that the programmes failed to achieve the envisaged targets. There were large scale diversions, wastages and irregularities, and more than 30 per cent of household latrines were defunct/non-functional.
