Cyclone Nivar: 'We go for zero casualty approach', says NDRF DG

National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) Director General SN Pradhan spoke on force's approach to manage effects of severe cyclonic storm 'Nivar' likely to make a landfall in southern states of India in wee hours of November 25.

He said that they'll go with "zero casualty approach." "This cyclone Nivar is the first cyclone of this season.

Nivar cyclone has built up in last 24-48 hours.

Cyclone Nivar is categorised as 'very severe' as per IMD.

In any case, we should go for zero casualty approach that should be our focus.

So, when we have no loss of life, we should move on property and keep the system running.

There are 19 teams of NDRF in Tamil Nadu, 6 in Puducherry and 7 teams in Andhra Pradesh.

We have to be proactive, not only before the cyclone but during and after the cyclone too."
