Construction of Community Sanitary Complexes (CSCs) as a part of the ongoing Samudayik Shauchalaya Abhiyan (SSA) is making headway across the country as 17 districts have achieved 100 per cent CSC coverage (at least one geo-tagged CSC in every village).

Samudayik Shauchalaya Abhiyaan (SSA) is being held from 15th June to 15th September 2020.
At this critical time of COVID-19 pandemic when sanitation and hygiene deserve the utmost priority, the campaign is intended to mobilize districts and villages to construct and maintain their community toilets.
The three-month-long campaign, organised by the Department of Drinking Water and Sanitation (DDWS), aims to provide sanitation access to migrants and floating population through CSCs. It will also sustain usage, increase the sense of ownership within the village, and ensure construction and maintenance of community toilets while following all safety and hygiene protocols, to promote community health.
By the end of the campaign, Districts, Blocks and Panchayats will be evaluated on the number of CSCs constructed; the number of CSCs constructed in SC/ST concentrated tolas (with more than 50% of the population from the SC/ST category); and number of CSCs constructed before the SSA campaign period.
Winners will be awarded at a national function on 2nd October 2020.
