NDRF to procure smart gadgets worth Rs 58 cr

With frequency of disasters increasing in the country, premier combat force NDRF is set to procure some high-end gadgetry worth about Rs 58 crore including some versatile machines like snake-eye camera, LED balloon lights and deep penetration ground sensing radars.

“India is a country which is hit the hardest by disasters. We are ranked number three on this list of recorded incidents of disasters after the US and China. All that I am trying to say is that disasters are a very very regular phenomenon in terms of intensity and frequency (in India) and that is why India is going to be a response-based country for another 5-10 years,” NDRF Director General O P Singh said during the Force’s annual press conference here.
