[See sub-rule (1) of rule 5]

      i.         The Social Impact Assessment Unit will review the proposal for land acquisition sent by the appropriate Government and produce a project-specific Terms of Reference and budget.

     ii.         The Terms of Reference shall include the following information:-

a.     A brief description of the project, project area and the extent of lands proposed for acquisition.

b.    The objectives of the Social Impact Assessment and all the activities that must be carried out by the Social Impact Assessment team.

c.     Sequencing, schedule and deadlines for deliverables with dates for the Social Impact Assessment process, based on the size and complexity of the project and land acquisition, and whether consent of Gram Sabhas and/or land owners is required to be sought.

Information regarding the processing fee bands and the cost for separate components or line items must be made consistent and easily accessible, so that the Requiring Body can factor this into its costs in advance.
