They might cause serious impact they may affect the project formulation depending on the magnitude of the impacts and the possibility of the measures. The environmental items which may have a significant impact depending on the scale of project and site conditions No markThe environmental items requiring no impact assessment since the anticipated impacts are in general, not significant. In case of the comprehensive development projects, all the items are classified in , because their studies are usually at the master planning stage and the extent of impacts are not clear.
