The vision for the development of nuclear energy in India is not new. It dates back to pre-independence days. The nation had embarked on the development of large-scale infrastructure for nuclear power generation and building scientific-technological base for it. The process of the development of nuclear energy was, however, not smooth. It had to overcome enormous difficulties to reach the present stage. The obstacles it had to face were primarily due to the technology denial regimes adopted by various nations that either had the expertise or had harnessed nuclear energy.
The objective of this taskforce has been to study the existing national and international frameworks, regulations and norms and make recommendations to strengthen the former. The study covers the following areas:
It is hoped that this task force would generate further discussions on the subject of the development of nuclear energy in India and the possible steps that it would have to take to make the generation of the power from atom safe and secure.
