Open defecation is a practice engrained in rural society and changing the related attitudes and behaviors is challenging and takes time. Handwashing is also not standard in many places. Even after the desire for toilets has been established, people are not aware of the rights they are entitled to under the Swachh Bharat Mission (SBM). When residents are aware of their rights, construction of toilets as per specification in SBM is difficult because of corrupt practices in contractors. Another issue is the scarcity of water; in places where toilets are wanted, it can be difficult to get a source of water to make them operational.
