One of the prime responsibilities of a State, which in most cases should be tackled in a collective manner along with the neighbouring provinces with active participation, cooperation, coordination, financial support, as well as, directive from the Centre. Each year owing to incessant rains advancing especially at the peak of the rainy season, severe floods causing relentless sufferings to millions of hapless peoples from several Indian states have become an expected annual calamity. This year too the disaster struck in a unsurprising manner affecting millions in populated states of Uttar Pradesh, Uttara Khand, Uttaranchal, Bihar, Assam, West Bengal, Orissa, Andhra Pradesh as well as in Tamil Nadu and in the deep south in Kerala where the severity was maximum. Even the capital New Delhi and relatively dry states like Rajasthan and Gujarat were also affected by the calamity. For reducing the severe condition faced by millions of people from several Indian States, a plan must be chalked out by the Government in association with the planners, scientists, engineers, technologists involving management of land and water. The author, based on his earlier communication on the subject, suggests certain essential measures aiming to alleviate the severe condition faced by the nation.

Urban, Rural, State responsibility.
