NDMA's 18th Formation Day on Sept 28: Amit Shah to attend

New Delhi: On September 28, the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) will hold its 18th Formation Day, and Union Home Minister Amit Shah is set to participate.

The event's principal guest will be the Home Minister, who will also address the gathering of NDMA personnel and others. Ajay Bhalla, the Union Home Secretary, would also be among the participants.

The Disaster Management Act was passed by the Indian government on December 23, 2005. It called for the establishment of the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA), under the leadership of the Prime Minister, and State Disaster Management Authorities (SDMAs), under the leadership of the respective Chief Ministers, to lead and carry out an all-encompassing and integrated approach to disaster management in India.

The (NDMA) is India's top disaster management body. The Disaster Management Act of 2005 mandates the setting up of NDMA and the development of a supportive environment for institutional mechanisms at the State and District levels.

The vision of the NDMA is to "create a safer and more disaster-resilient India by implementing a comprehensive, proactive, technology-driven, and sustainable development plan that engages all stakeholders and promotes a culture of prevention, preparedness, and mitigation." In order to provide a prompt and efficient response to disasters, the NDMA is required to set up the policies, strategies, and guidelines for Disaster Management.

The NDMA's various duties include establishing policies for disaster management, approving the national plan, plans created by government ministries or departments in accordance with the national plan, setting guidelines for state authorities to follow when creating the state plan, and setting guidelines for the various ministries or departments of the government of India to follow when integrating the measures.

The NDMA  also coordinates the enforcement and implementation of disaster management policies and plans; suggests funding allocations for disaster mitigation; offers assistance to other nations affected by major disasters as determined by the Central Government; and takes other actions for disaster prevention, mitigation, or preparedness and capacity building as it deems necessary.

For capacity building, the NDMA also collaborates closely with the National Institute of Disaster Management. It creates procedures, provides practical instruction, and plans disaster management drills. At the state and local levels, it also provides equipment and training for disaster management cells.
