Countries of activity

Location of main activity


The National Sample Survey Office (NSSO) in 2015 showed that more than half of India’s rural population (52.1%) was defecating in the open. This was a huge challenge for the Swachh Bharat Mission. The Central Government went on a war footing since and in 2019-20 the National Annual Rural Sanitation Survey showed that only 0.8% of the population in rural India did not have toilets and practiced open defecation.
This toilet crusade had also created a huge demand for toilet products and accessories across the country. Many households may have bought products that have been manufactured locally which may not be up to the specified quality. These households may turn out for refurbishing their toilets with quality products sooner or later. Hence the need to look at toilet beyond the four walls of the toilet and to look at the future for more decentralised sewage treatment plants in small towns, integration of bio-gas with toilets in rural areas, and a whole lot of innovations. The Toilet construction, maintenance, infrastructure and accessories market has opened up like never before in India.
There is also a felt need for educating people from all sections of the society in matters related to toilets, sanitation, water usage, hygiene and public ethics.
Indian Toilet Association's main objective is to educate people in sanitation related matters and therefore this joint effort with Exhicon will help us kick-start our activities.

INDIAN TOILET ASSOCIATION is a non-profit company started in May 2017 under the Section 8 of the Companies Act, India and is a fully compliant institution. The primary aim is to educate people about sanitation and waste management. Sanitation was a long-neglected sector. It was in 2014 that the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan ushered in the need for household toilets in India. On a war footing, over 10 crore toilets have been built across the country and this concerted effort has nearly put to an end the menace of open defecation in the country. Despite all out efforts, there exists a huge scope for educating the public and establishments in India about the proper use of toilets at home, school, institutions, offices, trains, planes, malls, so on and so forth. The main thrust area would be a general education process in WASH & toilet maintenance of household toilets, in proper using of public toilets and other facilities outside home. This general awareness is lacking among many and has to be imparted systematically over a period of time.
