As a signatory to Principle 10, India has made some progress to put its environmental democracy commitments into practice. It has established a legal infrastructure for access rights, including the EIA process, the introduction of public hearings of select projects requiring EIA’s, and setting up grievance redressal mechanisms in the the form of the National Environment Appellate Authority and the National Environmental Tribunal. Despite some of these advances, there is still a discrepancy between the law and implementation and enforcement. TAI Assessment indicators were used by the Society for Participatory Research in Asia (PRIA) in 2001 in New Delhi for a pilot study on pollution control. In 2004, the Idma Foundation for Sustainable Development launched an outreach strategy based on findings from the pilot assessment, leading to multiple publications on Indian environmental laws. These findings spurred a larger coalition of Indian NGO’s to look into carrying out more assessments throughout India, eventually forming TAI India. Starting in 2008, the Legal Initiative for Forest and Environment (LIFE) and Environics Trust became TAI India’s lead organizations, further expanding the coalition. They completed a TAI assessment for the State of Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand in 2008 and completed a nation-wide TAI assessment. Since then, the TAI India coalition has been active on a wide range of access and environmental issues.
