Earlier, on October 21, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi had spoken about the need to recognise and honour “the unsung heroes of the nation who are doing excellent work in the field of disaster management.” It was felt that many organisations and individuals are working silently but persistently on mitigation and preparedness towards minimising the impact of future disasters; and that there is a need to recognise their efforts towards alleviating human suffering caused by the disasters. On these lines, the Government of India has invited nominations for the Subhash Chandra Bose Aapda Prabandhan Puraskar.
