Position Paper on Crowd Management at Places of Mass Gatherings

Concerned at the recurring stampedes at places of mass gathering, including religious places, and typically ad-hoc responses to those, the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) has embarked on formulating an integrated and structured approach to crowd and disaster management at such places. This position paper is a step in that direction. The objective of this document is “To lay down the guidelines for the organisers, administrators, and other stakeholders for effective crowd management at the places of mass gathering”.

National Disaster Management Authority, India, September 2013.
