India has integrated administrative machinery at the national, state, district, block and village levels for disaster management.
India which follows a Federal system of government has specific roles for the Central and State government for disaster management.
Disasters are effectively managed through close cooperation between government and non-government organisations. The main responsibility of these organisations is to undertake rescue, relief and rehabilitation measures during natural or man-made disasters.
The Central government helps the state government in all possible ways during a disaster.
