Nuclear technology is hazardous. The world was reminded of this on March 3, when a fire broke out near the Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant in Ukraine (Europe’s largest) during the course of a military battle. 

Current Situation in India

  • There are presently 22 reactors with a total capacity of 6780 MW in operation and one reactor, KAPP-3 (700 MW) has been connected to the grid on January 10, 2021. In addition, there are 8 reactors (including 500 MW PFBR being implemented by BHAVINI) totaling to 6000 MW under construction at various stages.
  • Indian government informed Parliament that it plans to build 10 indigenous reactors in fleet mode.
  • It had granted “in principle approval” for 28 additional reactors, including 24 to be imported from France, the U.S. and Russia.
