Brief regional study of various geographical location reveals that the percentage of disasters have drastically increased which has led to the severe suffering of Human life residing in and around the disaster affected zone. The severity of the disaster sometimes make the relief operation a tedious task and also increases the response time for the operation which can worsen the human suffering in the disaster affected zone, which is why it becomes essential to make a strategic plan for providing relief operation so that the victims are treated with required amenities, medical aid social support to motivate them in the bad time. Disaster relief operation is a social responsibility of the human kind which involves meticulous planning and dynamic responsive system. In this paper an attempt is made to analyze a suitable model for the disaster relief system which can be used as an effective program to aid the victims of the disaster affected zone with minimum response time. The requirement of the well functional mathematical problem is analysed. Emphasis on the requirement of the vehicle routing and transportation problem is carried out to understand the different situation of the disaster and handle it with a suitable solution. The paper overall attempts to carry out a proper survey to develop a proper solution to handle the crisis
