The earlier record for the maximum number of such pits dug in a district in a day was held by Telangana, the senior IAS officer said.
To popularise the concept, the district administration in March undertook a "Build a toilet, win a trip to Singapore" scheme, he said.
"We selected tehsil-level winners from the villagers who took early initiative in building toilet at home and sent them on an all-expenses-paid trip to Singapore," Rayate said.
Winners were chosen through a lottery.
The scheme is part of the 'Marathwada Hagandari Mukt Sangram' (Marathwada campaign for eradication of open defecation) launched on the occasion of Gudi Padwa, the Marathi new year, Rayate said.
