The National Disaster Management Authority(NDMA)- Pro-active agency

The National Disaster Management Authority(NDMA) and State Disaster Management Authorities(SDMA) are doing well as it is evident from the recent warning signal communicated well in advance due to the Earthquake having epi-centre in Indonesia and measuring 8.5 on the Richter scale and its aftershocks, one of which was of 8.2 magnitude, sent tremors across many countries like Thailand, Indonesia, Myanmar and Malaysia, India, Sri Lanka.

We have kept pace with the need of time. Other south-eastern Asian countries also passed the test of time. The global cooperation and collaboration in the field of disaster management can go a long way in minimizing the fury of nature. The capabilities developed in this field of disaster management can be further highlighted by the fact the India has largest National Disaster Response Force and the recently conducted successful mock drills to check the disaster response system and staffs. This exercise has also raised sincere awareness among the public.
