Status of Disaster Management in India
Calamity the board in India has gone through considerable changes in its structure, nature and strategy. The Disaster Management Act, 2005, accommodates setting up of a National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA), among different arrangements. The 2014 Parliamentary Standing Committee Report refers to that the Authority, notwithstanding, isn’t working ideally and is in pressing need of another activity plan.
India’s risk profile is reliant on the geo-climatic conditions and geographical highlights, and the hidden weaknesses cause yearly calamities of differing degrees like floods, dry seasons, typhoons, waves, quakes, avalanches, torrential slides and timberland fire in the nation. It is assessed that around 59 percent of India’s territory region is inclined to quakes and the Himalayas and abutting regions, upper east, portions of Gujarat and Andaman Nicobar Islands are seismically generally dynamic.
As per the Natural Disaster Management Division of the Ministry of Agriculture, GoI, 33 percent of India’s zone gets precipitation under 750 mm making it constantly dry season inclined, while 35 percent gets precipitation between 750-1125 mm and is relegated the dry spell inclined status—hence a sum of 68 percent territory of the nation is inclined to dry season in fluctuating degrees. Out of 40 million hectares of flood inclined zone in the area, around 7.5 million hectares are influenced each year by repeating floods.
While flood happens in practically all waterway bowls in India, huge pieces of states, for example, Assam, Bihar, Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal are influenced consistently. Around 12 percent land is inclined to flood and waterway disintegration; and sloping regions are in danger from avalanches a lot. Roughly 71 percent (5300 km) of the 7516 km long shoreline of India is defenceless to typhoons. Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Andhra Pradesh, Odisha, Tamil Nadu and Pondicherry are influenced occasionally because of typhoons. As per the yearly report (2012-13) of Ministry of Home Affairs, out of 35 states and association domains in the nation, 27 are catastrophe inclined.
The vocation security of the waterfront networks and biological security of the seaside zones of India are as of now under pressure because of high populace thickness, fast urbanization and modern turn of events, high pace of beach front ecological corruption and incessant event of cataclysmic events, for example, twisters and tempests.
The issue will be additionally exasperated by an ascent in ocean level because of a worldwide temperature alteration. The waterfront zone in India, especially the east coast is powerless against hydro meteorological perils, for example, twisters, floods and geophysical dangers like the tidal wave.
I have always been against Glorifying Over Work and therefore, in the year 2021, I have decided to launch this campaign “Balancing Life”and talk about this wrong practice, that we have been following since last few years.
