Ecological Impact Assessment of Surface Mining Project

  • Subodh Kumar Maiti


Indian EIA in general and those of mining projects in particular lack focus and direction. Born out of executive directions and legal mandates, they often end up as documents with loads of information of which much are of little use. This has lead to a situation where, notwithstanding the notable expectations, EIA documents are not yet to appropriate use in environmental management.
