Different measures have been adopted by government, public servant, NGO’s to prevent and reduce the flood impact in the area but still great success could be achieved. The present paper is descriptive and effort is made to explore the existing challenges and issues to resolve the problem of flood disaster in Bihar. Lack of awareness, dishonesty in resource utilization in flood controlling process, deficiency of sense of accountability and poor level of education for flood disaster regulation methods among the general population were serious lacuna in following the guidelines of Disaster Flood Management in the study area. Building resilient society at grassroots level to disaster and management of vulnerability is the most important effort to manage the flood and its associated problems.
