New Delhi: The government today approved appointment of a scientist, an armyman and a UN expert on disaster reduction as members of the revamped NDMA, which had previously seen mostly politicians and retired bureaucrats with no background of disaster management holding office.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has approved the names of Kamal Kishore, a disaster reduction expert at the United Nations Development Programme, Lt Gen N C Marwah (retired), and D N Sharma, Director of Health, Safety and Environment Group at Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, official sources said.

A formal order regarding their appointment is expected shortly, the sources said.

The three were selected from a list of 82 names received after the Home Ministry for the first time invited applications from subject experts.
