Consequent to the June 2013 Uttarakhand disaster, the Government of India had approved a medium and long-term reconstruction package to assist the State. This package was taken by erstwhile Planning Commission (now NITI Aayog) on 9th December 2013.
National Disaster Management Plan (NDMP) defines the roles and responsibilities of various stake holders including Central Ministries/ Departments, State Governments, UT Administrations, District Authorities and local self Governments. NDMP enjoins all stakeholders to develop detailed plans in accordance with roles and responsibilities. Implementation of the plan is a continuous process.
