The Bhopal disaster, also referred to as the Bhopal gas tragedy, was a gas leak incident on the night of 2–3 December 1984 at the Union Carbide India Limited (UCIL) pesticide plant in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, India. It is considered among the world's worst industrial disasters.Over 500,000 people were exposed to methyl isocyanate (MIC) gas.

Environment impact assessment (EIA) is a process under the Environment (Protection) Act, 1986, which prevents industrial and infrastructural projects from being approved without proper oversight. This process ensures that every project should go through the EIA process for obtaining prior environmental clearance.

EIA covers projects such as mining of coal or other minerals, infrastructure development, thermal, nuclear and hydropower projects, real estate and other industrial projects. The projects are assessed based on their potential impact on the environment.

Recently, the Union Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change released a draft Environment Impact Assessment 2020 notification. The draft notification was officially issued on March 23, 2020, just a day before the entire country was put under lockdown.

The Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) is an appraisal process to address and ascertain the environmental and social costs of mining, industrial, and infrastructure projects before they are given regulatory approvals to set-up. It is a critical step that builds legal environmental safeguards for a project through a set of conditions. These conditions try to minimise adverse impacts on the environment, public health, and social well-being of the communities who are likely to get affected by these projects.
