VI. Legislative support to the Disaster Management  

@

There is no mention of disaster management as a subject/item in any of the three lists  (Central, State and concurrent) under the Schedule 7 of the Constitution of India. Keeping in view the importance of field of disaster management, the issue of inclusion of this subject appropriately is under active consideration of the Government of India. The National Committee on Disaster Management, set up in February 2001 under the Chairmanship of Prime Minister, is considering the matter.

The present arrangements and organizational set up for managing the natural disasters are based on the recommendations of the Finance Commissions (appointed from time to time ) and various orders/notifications issued by the Government of India.
