Landslide (E)

Landslides are hazardous in almost all the hilly areas of the country. To cope with this disaster, the Geological Survey of India is acting as the nodal agency for earthquake monitoring. This organization in association with other research institutes, such as Central Building Research Institute, Central Road Research Institute and IITs, has been working to minimize the effect of the disaster. Modern techniques are used to monitor landslides and a public information system is being developed along with a sensor based pre-information system.
