New Delhi: Con­struc­tion of toi­lets in vil­lages has gen­er­ated nearly 70 crore man-days since the launch of Swachh Bharat Mis­sion in 2014, the gov­ern­ment said on Fri­day.

“Con­struc­tion of one toi­let takes three days and three peo­ple are en­gaged. So far about 7.7 crore toi­lets have been built. You can calculate the man-days of work gen­er­ated be­cause of toi­let con­struc­tion,” drink­ing water and san­i­ta­tion sec­re­tary Parameswaran Iyer told TOI.
