Disaster management Act 2005: Provisions & Punishment: Explained

The Disaster Management Act, 2005 is in news these days yet again. The Act was enacted in the country on 26th December, 2005. It came into effect in the aftermath of the 2004 tsunami, when the country lost thousands of lives. It was passed by the government for efficient management of disasters, including preparation of mitigation strategies, capacity-building and related matters.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi serves as the head of the National Disaster Management Authority, the nodal agency which holds the mandate to lay down policies for disaster management. With the western and eastern coasts of the country facing two major cyclonic storms over the last 10 days, PM Modi in his recent address of Mann KI Baat, had acknowledged the efforts of the rescue team which are part of the governing bodies established under the Disaster Management Act.
