India sets up panel to assess tsunami related risks

The environment ministry has formed a four-member group to evaluate the additional safeguards needed for existing projects and to suggest measures to be taken for environmental impact assessment for projects to come up in future.

The ministry has also asked the four Expert Appraisal Committees (EAC) relating to industry, infrastructure, thermal power and nuclear power to deliberate on tsunami-related risks.

"In addition, it is necessary to review the current systems we have for assessing tsunami-type risks as part of environmental impact assessment of such projects," the ministry said in a statement.
