National Disaster Management Plan

The main purpose of the National Disaster Management Plan is to outline the prevention, preparedness, mitigation and response measures of any situation emerging out of natural or human-induced disasters in the country. It provides operational guidance relating to the all-hazard emergency situations and describes the overall roles and responsibilities of the concerned departments/organisations in minimising loss of life and suffering. It also provides for a rapid response to disasters through effective use of Local, State, National and International resources.
