Cost of cleanliness

Subsidy for household toilets has been one of the most sensitive and widely debated issues, notes Kumar Alok in Squatting with Dignity: Lessons from India. He traces that the reduction in the subsidy amount to Rs 600 for BPL families was a major policy change in TSC (Total Sanitation Campaign) of 1999, as compared to CRSP (Central Rural Sanitation Programme) which provided Rs 2,000 per household.
