    Environmental aspects

    The project, if located in the EU, would fall under Annex II of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Directive leaving to the competent authority the decision as to whether an EIA is required or not. According to the applicable Indian law, solar power projects do not require an EIA. Under the conditions of the related framework loan, the promoter is required to carry out an Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) study for the project. The Bank will review ESIA documentation during appraisal and ensure adherence to its environmental and social standards.


    The implementation of the project will be done in compliance with the Bank's Guide to Procurement. The EIB will monitor the procurement process to ensure compliance with the guidelines.
