The West Bengal government has set a target to construct toilets across all villages of the state by March 2019 to enable open defecation free (ODF) rural Bengal.

“The Hooghly, East Midnapore and North 24 Parganas districts will be ODF by September this year while the districts of Burdwan and South 24 Paraganas are working fast and hope to achieve ODF by March 2017,” Sarkar said.
