India’s Central Government and state governments are empowered to regulate health-related matters.  The Epidemic Diseases Act is the main legislative framework at the central level for the prevention and spread of dangerous epidemic diseases.  The Act empowers the central government to take necessary measures to deal with dangerous epidemic disease at ports of entry and exit.  The Act also empowers the states to take special measures or promulgate regulations to deal with epidemics within their state jurisdictions.  In such emergencies the states delegate some of these powers to the deputy commissioners in the districts, typically through state health acts or municipal corporation acts.  Thus, responsibility for directly addressing the crisis rests with the deputy commissioner at the district level.
