The National Planning Commission (NPC) has decided to mobilise 20,000 volunteers aimed at assisting the earthquake victims.
The NPC has informed that the volunteers would be mobilised as the Himalayan Climate Change Initiatives, a social organisation, asked for permission for the purpose. The team would work under the coordination of the NPC, it is learnt.
Similarly, the NPC has urged the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to inform about the post-disaster scenario to the bilateral and multilateral donor agencies as the NPC has begun collecting data and started the rehabilitation and reconstruction works. RSS
