How to add "Breadcrumbs" on the Checkout page (magento 1.9)?

Though by default the "Checkout" page does not contain breadcrumbs,

but I want to add those on my "Checkout" page.

I called them in my template with

<?php echo $this->getLayout()->getBlock('breadcrumbs')->toHtml(); ?>

All added the "Breadcrumb block" in my checkout layout

but still it is not getting displayed

By default checkout page does not have breadcrumb if you want static breadcrumb then you can add by following xml code.

you can add this xml in your theme local.xml file

this handler is based on default magento setup please check handler if you have custom checkout extension please change handler as per your own.

if you want to add intermediate breadcrumb then add addCrumb code.

<checkout_onepage_index translate="label">
   <reference name="breadcrumbs"> 
      <action method="addCrumb"> <!--add breadcrumb-->
      <action method="addCrumb"> <!--add breadcrumb-->
