India is one of the most disaster-prone countries of the world. Natural disasters such as earthquake, cyclone, floods, drought, landslides etc. are recurrent phenomenon in the country. People in large number often face these natural calamities that lead to loss of lives and destruction of valuable properties. It is important to note that about 85 percent of India’s area is vulnerable to one or multiple hazard. Of the 29 states in India, 22 are disaster-prone. The Government of India through the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) and National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) and with the assistance of National Institute of Disaster Management (NIDM) has developed the post-disaster assessment tools for India assisted by the World Bank to cope with the challenges of natural disasters in the country. The paper mainly describes about the main functionaries of the agencies in the aftermath of a disaster to enable the survivors for their socio-economic and psychological well-being. At the same time, the paper also gives some suggestive measures for foreseeable future in order to cope with the challenges of the natural disasters in a concrete manner.
