The mission was started on the date of 2nd October 2014 which marks the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. Their main motto was to start building toilets in the rural areas for the common masses with a fund of 1.96 lakh crore.

The research work was based on three states which are West Bengal, Bihar, and Odisha. Groundwater samples were collected from those states’ villages and were sent to different water laboratories. According to the report, the waste is polluting the water 11.25 times than any other portions of the states. The waste which is poisonous is mixed with the water and contaminating the groundwater. It is very common over those villages.

Afterward, the study says that the water contamination was mainly done by Human wastes. It is 12.7 times more dangerous than regular wastes. Such villages have chances of soil contamination as well.

Rural areas also have a problem with drinking water. They have 1.48 times higher chances of food destruction. The study has also given the strategies of reducing the contamination levels by improving hygiene and sanitation practices.
