But the complete EIA report has not been made available to the public (as per the rules). 

The Nuclear Power Corporation of India Ltd (NPCIL) is intended to setup Haryana Atomic Power Project (HAPP) 4x700 MWe Pressurized Heavy Water Reactor (PHWR) units at Gorakhapur, Dist Fatehabd.

The report is prepared as per the procedure specified in the EIA 2006 Notification of Ministry of Forest and Environment (MoE&F).
