India's Nuclear Plants to Remain State Owned
Source: Nuclear Engineering International (8/16/10)
"India has no plans to allow private companies to set up nuclear plants."
Chavan told the Rajya Sabha, India's upper house of parliament that the government doesn't intend to change the related provision of the Atomic Energy Act, 1962 for private participation in setting up nuclear power plants, at this stage. Currently, private companies can become involved in nuclear projects as minor partners in a government company.
In February, the government's economic advisory panel said that there was an 'urgent need' to make regulatory changes so that investment in the nuclear power-generation business could begin to flow, including from established private companies.
