Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) represents a systematic and well defined process which examines the environmental consequences of the development actions of any proposed activity beforehand. The existing guidelines have been prescribed by a Government of India (MOEF) notification. Screening Scoping, Public Hearing followed by appraisal are the primary components of an EIA. A case study has been presented for the proposed establishment of a coal beneficiation plant. After conducting baseline environmental study, the incremental pollution loads have been assessed. The cumulative analysis of the study suggests that the project is environmentally feasible.
