Social Impact Assessment

Social Impact Assessment (SIA) is a comprehensive process designed to identify, analyze, assess, manage, and monitor potential social impacts associated with a project, encompassing both positive and negative aspects.

According to SEBI guidelines, Impact Assessment reports are obligatory for all registered or listed Social Enterprises. Additionally, Rule 8(3) of the Companies (CSR Policy) Rules, 2014 specifies that certain companies are mandated to conduct impact assessments:

  1. Companies with a minimum average CSR obligation of Rs. 10 crore or more in the immediately preceding three financial years.
  2. Companies undertaking CSR projects with outlays of at least Rs. 1 crore, completed not less than one year before the impact assessment.

Impact assessments are required to be conducted on a project-by-project basis, fulfilling both conditions mentioned above. Alternatively, companies can choose to undertake impact assessments on a voluntary basis in other cases.
