She has agreed to give her time for the campaign for two years and will be fully involved in the Nirmal Bharat Abhiyan--the restructured version of the Total Sanitation Campaign.

Speaking on the matter, Union Rural Development Minister Jairam Ramesh said, ''She will appear in ad campaigns to propagate construction and use of toilets. Balan is the first brand ambassador of the Ministry. Vidya's involvement will make the campaign to end open defecation a national obsession.''
