Explain the role of Central Government in responding to disasters.

Role of the Central government during a disaster depends on the gravity of the disaster. Depending on the gravity of the situation the Centre decides the scale of relief operations. The Centre provides financial support and other logistical support to the state government that faces any disaster.


All natural disasters are coordinated by the Ministry of Home affairs. Drought alone is taken care of by the Ministry of Agriculture.

When we talk of man-made disasters like accidents different Central government Ministries handle them.

Air accidents                                       - Ministry of Civil Aviation

Railway accidents                                - Ministry of Railways

Chemical, Biological & Nuclear disasters - Ministry of Home Affairs

Epidemics                                           - Ministry of Health and Family Welfare

This distribution of responsibility is done to make the disaster management more effective and fast.

The Prime Minister; the Ministers of the Union Cabinet and the National Crisis Management Committee are collectively responsible for the decisions taken for disaster management.
