Policy & Plans Division deals with all matters pertaining to formulation of policies and guidelines as well as approval of plans of all Central Ministries and Departments. Mainstreaming disaster management in development plans is also an important function of this division. As work involved in these fields is enormous and requires a very dedicated effort by all the Ministries and Departments, this division works in a proactive manner with all the stakeholders.
