Swachh Bharat Mission is moving well on the path of success in Tamil Nadu. The ambitious cleanliness campaign of the Central government is helping in creating awareness among people about the importance of hygiene and side effects of open defecation. People in the state are now using household toilets that have been constructed under the Mission.
 
In Tuticorin district of Tamil Nadu, Swachh Bharat Mission has improved cleanliness and ensured proper sanitation in the Thangampatti village. Ayyammal who resides in the village told that earlier people were using open spaces for toilets but now the Mission has helped the villagers understand the importance of being clean and healthy.
 
Ganesan who lives in the village said that the project has helped the people to build toilets and also helped the villager to understand the sanitation better.
 
Nearly two lakh gram panchayats have been declared as open defecation in the country free this year. Tamil Nadu is one of the states to achieve 100 percent open defecation free status in the country.
