District Disaster Management                                         

District North East of the National Capital Territory of Delhi is part of the Yamuna River Edge, ipso facto, it is more prone to flood and Earth Quake than the other districts. Adding to this, Districts on Yamuna Pushta are timid with migrants from various parts of the country viz. Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Punjab so forth, creating large number of narrow lined resettlement colonies, slums and industrial areas. Moreover, in the latest seismic map of the county, Delhi falls under Zone IV, which means it is highly vulnerable to multi hazards, especially Earth Quake.

Some of the common disasters in North East District could be listed as regular and increased number of fire hazards, seasonal flood situation, explosion of LPG cylinders causing multi injury, death and loss of property, odd cases of riots and violence, large number of migration from other states creating multiple slums and contagious diseases in the slum and resettlement colonies. According to Delhi Fire Service records; there were 13336 cases of fire accidents in the district for the last 10-year span. If this figure itself is distributed for each single year the number comes as 1333 cases per year. This is an alarming figure, which calls attention of the district administration and disaster managers.

District Level Mechanism

So far the Deputy Commissioner of North East Delhi, with help of Additional District Magistrate, under the Department of Relief and Rehabilitation, was looking after the entire disaster management activities in District North East. But as Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) has been set up and the proposed Bill for changing name of Relief and Rehabilitation Department as “Department of Disaster Management” is under preparation, the structure of district level disaster management took a new form. Apart from this, GOI-UNDP Disaster Risk Management Programme has been started with the support of United Nations Development Programme.

District Disaster Management Committee

District Disaster Management Committee is the high-powered committee at District level to look after disaster management and emergency response. This high-powered committee is chaired by the Deputy Commissioner (NE) with all Policy Makers from the District/Nodal Officer of each line department/ADM (NE)/SDMs and nodal officers from various Organizations as its members. ADM (NE) is the convener of District Disaster Management Committee (DDMC).

Inclusion of new members and removal of existing members of the DDMC, as it is required, is under the discretion of the DDMC. But this shall be discussed in the Meeting prior to action. Also members from RWA, MTA, MCD councilors etc shall be nominated on rotation basis, so that maximum stakeholder ship can be assured.

A District Project Officer (DPO-NE) has been appointed in the district directly under the Deputy Commissioner to look after the day-to-day affairs of disaster management in the district.

The DDMC members have to meet at least once in two months in normal situation and once in month or more in case of crisis situation. Minutes of DDMC meeting shall be circulated among the members.
