Rahul,
TOGAF is an enterprise architecture framework. This means that you use it to come up with how your organization does enterprise architecture. Which is higher level than project architecture. There are still some parts of your organization's TOGAF implementation that you will see on development projects though. Architecture principles jump out at me as one such thing.

Well said. For example, in one of our projects we were performing batch data integration. Our project folks were asked to align with the EA team's principles on the patterns/best practices to be adopted for the solution. This way, it will help adopt proven discipline across the board.
