Report of the Committee Chaired by Prof. A new website - [ http: Environmental Appraisal Committees With a view to ensure multi-disciplinary input required for environmental appraisal of development projects, Expert Committees have been constituted for the following sectors: Projects Infrastructure Development and Miscellaneous Projects Nuclear Power Projects Environmental Appraisal Procedure Once an application has been submitted by a project authority alongwith all the requisite documents specified in the EIA Notification, it is scrutinised by the technical staff of the Ministry prior to placing it before the Environmental Appraisal Committees.
Monitoring After considering all the facets of a project, environmental clearance is accorded subject to implementation of the stipulated environmental safeguards. The procedure adopted for monitoring is as follows: In case of substantial deviations and poor or no response, the matter is taken up with the concerned State Government.
Natural resources are finite and are dwindling at a fast pace. Optimization of natural resources for achieving the objective of sustainable development is therefore, self evidents, this can be done only when environmental considerations are internalized in the development process.
It has often been observed that one or more natural resource s becomes a limiting resource in a given region thereby restricting the scope of development portfolios.
The studies involve:. A few problem areas such as the Doon Valley - an ecologically sensitive area, the National Capital Region NCR which is suffering from air and water pollution as well as congestion, Damodar River Basin which is very rich in natural resources and yet has extensive environmental degradation and Tapi estuary which represents the problems in the coastal region both for water and land development, have been selected for carrying out such studies.
A multi-disciplinary and multi-institutional approach has been adopted for conducting these studies. Work relating to Damodar Basin and Tapi Estuary is continuing with respect to secondary data collection and analysis so as to identify the requirements of primary data collection and modification in the development scenarios.

Items of Work Handled. EIAs are unique in that they do not require adherence to a predetermined environmental outcome, but rather they require decision makers to account for environmental values in their decisions and to justify those decisions in light of detailed environmental studies and public comments on the potential environmental impacts.
The EIA has the following objectives: The World is becoming more aware of climate change and its dangers. As a result, some changes have been made to laws across the world. These changes emerged because of the need to protect Earth from harmful consequences.
For instance, global warming, ozone depletion and deforestation. One way to do so is mandating environmental due diligence for companies. Companies must perform this before setting up any unit that might harm the environment. EIA is one of the successful policy innovations of the 20 th Century for environmental conservation.
Prior to January , EIA in India was carried out under administrative guidelines, which required the project proponents of major irrigation projects, river valley projects, power projects, ports and harbours, etc. Since then there have been 12 amendments made in the EIA notification of The notification makes it mandatory for various projects such as mining, thermal power plants, river valley, infrastructure road, highway, ports, harbours and airports and industries including very small electroplating or foundry units to get environment clearance.
Certain activities permissible under the Coastal Regulation Zone Act, also require similar clearance. Additionally, donor agencies operating in India like the World Bank and the ADB have a different set of requirements for giving governmental clearance to projects that are funded by them. The amendment has brought about the following changes: This online submission must be made by the project proponent along with the application for building permission.
The responsibility of this Cell would be monitoring the implementation of the amended Notification and providing an oversight to the Third- Party Auditing process. The Notification provides for the State govts to enact suitable laws to impose penalties for non-compliance of environmental conditions and parameters. The stages of an process will depend upon the requirements of the country or donor.
However, most EIA processes have a common structure and the application of the main stages is a basic standard of good practice.
The EIA consists of eight steps with each step equally important in determining the overall performance of the project. Typically, the EIA process begins with screening to ensure time and resources are directed at the proposals that matter environmentally and ends with some form of follow up on the implementation of the decisions and actions taken as a result of an EIA report.
The eight steps of the EIA process are presented in brief below: First stage of EIA, which determines whether the proposed project, requires an EIA and if it does, then the level of assessment required.
The stage identifies the key issues and impacts that should be further investigated. This stage also defines the boundary and time limit of the study.
This stage of EIA identifies and predicts the likely environmental and social impact of the proposed project and evaluates the significance.
After the completion EIA report the law requires that the public must be informed and consulted on a proposed development after the completion of EIA report. This step in EIA recommends the actions to reduce and avoid the potential adverse environmental consequences of development activities.
This stage presents the result of EIA in a form of a report to the decision- making body and other interested parties. It examines the adequacy and effectiveness of the EIA report and provides the information necessary for decision-making. It decides whether the project is rejected, approved or needs further change. This stage comes into play once the project is commissioned.
