Cyclones are named by the Regional Specialised Meteorological Centres (RSMC) and Tropical Cyclone Warning Centres (TCWC)

The United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and Pacific panel countries named a list of tropical cyclones over north Indian Ocean

India is a part of 13 countries panel to name cyclones 

Each country submits a list of 13 names of cyclones and rotationally the cyclones are named over these names
