Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is an essential tool to assess potential environmental impacts due to a developmental activity. These impacts are fully understood and taken into account before the development is allowed to go ahead.
Government attaches high priority to the formulation and timely execution of development activities consistent with the declared socio-economic objectives of State's Policy. Government also considers it essential that such development does not result in indiscriminate and destructive uses of natural and other resources, nor should it lead to adverse environmental consequences at present and in the future.
ENVIRTA uses EIA as a formal tool to predict the environmental effects & consequences of developmental projects in the areas of mining, construction, oil & gas transportation pipeline, highways, thermal power plants, metallurgical industries, CMSWMF etc.
