Natural Disasters And Jurisprudence In India

Anurama Kumar, NMIMS Kirit P. Mehta School of Law


India has always been prone to natural occurring disasters due to its special geographical and climatic conditions. India is highly prone to natural disasters than other developed countries. Human, financial, environmental, and livelihood losses are all being incurred as a result of this. Natural disasters have sparked considerable concern on a global scale. The latest and new approach initiated by the government is grounded on the belief that growth cannot be encouraged until and unless the disaster mitigation is dismantled and factored into the process of development. The handling of disasters is an important part of this country's policy. People from backward regions of the country and people from poor community are more prone to these disasters as compared to rich people because of the area of living and working. They tend to live in more disaster-prone area and work in sectors like agriculture which are highly prone to extreme weather conditions. And the amount of help given to these people by the government is also considerably less.
