This policy is in consistent to National Disaster Management policy. The policy covers the   three phases of  disasters and lays out programmes for these three phases.

2. Impact Phase –Emergency Relief Measures and Relief

This phase includes all measures that are taken immediately in the aftermath of a disaster. The speed and efficiency of the response in this phase will crucially  the loss to life and property
