The scope of work comprises the following main tasks:

Screening, Scoping And Social Assessment:

  • Carry out a social screening which would include desk review of the available reports, designs and information along with field visits of the Metro alignment, its other components to be developed like depot area, stations, yard, sub-station, parking, etc., or an any other associated facilities to be established as part of the metro development to determine the magnitude of actual and potential envisaged impacts to ensure that social considerations are given adequate weight in the selection and design of proposed Metro project. 
  • The purpose of this screening shall be to minimize negative social impacts, both through the selection process and by providing inputs and guidance to the engineering designs.
  • A census and inventory survey shall be undertaken to register and document the status of the potentially affected population within the likely project impact area, their assets, and sources of livelihood. This census shall cover 100% of those people who are potentially affected. 
  • Absence of legal title does not disqualify people from support; thus, people occupying private land as well as those currently occupying public lands for shelter, business purposes, or other sources of livelihood should be covered in a census. This  information shall be documented and compared with available records of land ownership etc.
  • The purpose of this census is to document and verify the existing population and their assets. A cut-off date shall be determined, to determine who may be entitled to relocation assistance or other benefits from the project. People moving into the project area after this cut-off date will not be entitled to support. 
  • Enumerate the magnitude of the impacts so that the field teams can be deployed accordingly to accomplish the surveys and field activities as per the time schedule defined.
  • Collect information on the digitized revenue maps or urban area maps with the project alignment duly marked. Such revenue maps/urban areas maps shall be furnished by Client. This will enable us to enumerate the list of properties that will be affected due to the project development. The map should demarcate all the physical interventions proposed to be established along the alignment or in relation to the metro development.
  • Identification of the different categories and extent of impacts envisaged under the project. This will include both titleholders and all non-titleholders within the impact zone.
  • Identify cases of likely impact on local communities, to establish the applicability of GOI/State Government/Bank’s regulations as necessary.
