on in many districts. Maintenance was to be done only if we received a complaint and none of the DUDA officials or beneficiary has complained about the constructed toilet till now. Training and seminars were conducted in all the districts, which convinced the beneficiaries to get the toilets constructed in the first place,” said Jha.

Imam said, “We have already conducted a biometric survey of beneficiaries for the scheme in 2008. However, since the number of cards to be made is over 73,000, the process is still going on.” He said the toilets were constructed between 2009 and 2011 and the payment was made by SUDA “only after the DMs submitted their report verifying the construction of toilets”.

A few months ago, Chintamani and Srivastava, along with officials of Sulabh International and other NGOs, were named in an FIR lodged by SUDA officials in Rampur district when it was found that payment had been made against alleged fake construction of toilets.

Similar irregularities were also unearthed in Meerut and Bareilly districts, after which the government ordered district magistrates of all 53 districts to physically verify the construction of toilets under the scheme and submit their reports by November 2. Most of the reports are still awaited, said Yaduvanshi.
