The NDRF's chief, Atul Karwal, has been named Director-General. IPS personnel on assignment from Indian police organizations serve as Director Generals of the NDRF. A three-star officer is the Director-General.

The National Catastrophe Reaction Force (NDRF) is an Indian specialized force established under the Disaster Management Act of 2005 'for a specific response to a serious disaster scenario or disaster.' India's 'Apex Body for Disaster Management' is the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA). The NDMA is the Prime Minister. In India, the state government is responsible for disaster management. The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) is the federal government's 'Nodal Ministry' for dealing with natural catastrophes.

When 'natural calamities' strike, the Central Government is responsible for providing aid and assistance to the affected state, including deploying Armed Forces, Central Paramilitary Forces, the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF), and other usable and required interaction, air, and other assets at the state's request. The National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) is a division of the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA). The NDRF has a considerable number of Inspector Generals (IG) and Deputy Inspector Generals, who are flag leaders and wear rank badges, in contrast to the Director-General.
