Ministry of Environment & Forests has taken several policy initiatives and enacted environmental and pollution control legislations to prevent indiscriminate exploitation of natural resources and to promote integration of environmental concerns in developmental projects. One such initiative is the Notification on Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) of developmental projects issued on 27.1.1994 under the provisions of Environment (Protection) Act, 1986 making EIA mandatory for 29 categories of developmental projects, since then more categories have been added to this. The EIA Manual, Application, Forests Clearance and Questionnaires developed by the Environmental Impact Assessment Division, Ministry of Environment and Forests Government of India gives the clear concept for consultants and regulatory authorities on the required pathways for environmental clearance.
