Government of India initiatives have been instrumental in constructing or partially subsidising the construction of
toilets for poorer households. However, even after two decades of such large-scale efforts, the programme failed to tackle the water-borne disease burden. Of late, studies have located the rift between construction and use of toilets. Scientific analyses of identifying inter- and intra-household barriers to the use of toilets have rarely been undertaken. The present study paper attempts to bridge this gap using a primary survey of households in four villages of Jalpaiguri district,West Bengal.
