What is N-DEAL

‘N-Deal will help launch thorium reactors’
As US President George W Bush’s visit approaches, the few voices within the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE) have joined to become a chorus.
While DAE as a whole, has been painted as being opposed to separating military and civilian facilities, the “rebels” within DAE hope the government would not let the opportunity pass. For obvious reasons, they want to remain anonymous.

“India has witnessed four decades of stifled progress in the civilian nuclear programme, which till recently was acting more like camouflage for the not explicitly spelt out military ambitions,” said one top DAE scientist.

“It is high time that the dubious status of affairs changes”, he said. “In a changed world, where China is making strategic agreements to buy uranium from Canada and Australia for long-term energy security, India can ill-afford to turn down the opportunities striking its doors,” said another physicist at the Bhabha Atomic Research Center (BARC).
