PM orders technical review of plants to check if they can withstand major disasters

The Government, which banks on nuclear power to reduce dependence on petroleum, has refrained from backing a call for review of its policy, following the meltdown of two reactors in Japan.

India has not only mastered the complex technology of heavy water production making it self-reliant, but also exports high quality heavy water to countries like Republic of Korea and the United States, said A L N Rao, Chairman and Chief Executive, Heavy Water Board on Monday.
