Managing Crowd

In view of  the recurring stampedes at places of mass gathering, including religious places, and typically ad-hoc responses to those, the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) has prepared ‘Suggestive Framework for Preparation of Crowd Management Plan for Events/Venues of Mass Gathering’ and a working Paper for Preparation of Crowd Management Plan, titled ‘Managing Crowds – A Guide for Administrators and Organizers of Events and Venues’. These documents would enable state governments / local agencies and the administrators/organizers of events and venues of mass gathering to prepare appropriate guidelines and plan for effective and efficient crowd management.
