The present paper is a report of strategic schemes to improve the disaster management advisories for nuclear power plants in India. The response to natural disasters and man-made accidents are treated separately and we provide a methodology for implementing them. Since natural disturbances are fairly predictable a few days in advance, a proper real-time simulation of the atmospheric and oceanic dispersion of the effluents with a good scheme to disseminate the information to general public (through NKN networks) will help in reducing the inconvenience to the people. Seasonal and monsoonal variations in currents, waves and winds will determine where and how far the effluents travel. On the other-hand, man-made errors and accidents being quite unpredictable, a better action plan can be drawn up using a vulnerability ma. We propose that, the vulnerability analysis should be done with the aid of Particle Trajectory Tracking Models (PTTM).
