Bihar under Nitish Kumar has hit the headline, thanks to the Bihar State Disaster Management Authority(BSDMA) and (IIT), Patna.
BSDMA has introduced a device matching the CM’s name for farmers and common people. This device has technology to alert them on lightning, floods, heatwaves, and coldwaves.
Termed as people- friendly Initiative is Technological Intervention for Safety of Humanlives (NITISH). It is the outcome of a joint efforts of the disaster management authority and the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Patna.
This has come up with a pendant-shaped device that will sound alert to its users through voice message on lightning, floods, heatwaves and coldwaves. The device is synced with the Bihar meteorological service centre.
The device was recently launched in presence of the CM in Patna earlier this week. Reports say that when the CM learnt about the name of the device, he smiled and said the state government has its eyes fixed on strengthening its disaster management system.
“The state government has built a high-tech disaster management system inside a building on the premises of Sardar Patel Bhavan (police headquarters), which can withstand an earthquake of over 8.0 magnitude on the Richter scale,” CM Nitish had said.
