Beginning of a New Nuclear Era in India

Foreign Secretary S. Jaishankar and Japanese ambassador to India H.E. Mr. Kenji Hiramatsu, by exchanging diplomatic notes on July 20, 2017, formalized the completion process of the landmark India-Japan civil nuclear agreement.


With this, the India-Japan Agreement for Cooperation in the Peaceful Uses of Nuclear Energy came into force paving the way for a new era in nuclear energy in India.


The agreement is of vital importance for India as it enables many US nuclear energy companies, willing to construct nuclear plants in the country are owned by Japanese companies such as Toshiba. Without this agreement, these companies were barred from undertaking any nuclear activities with India.


The nuclear pact was signed in 2016, in Tokyo, during Prime Minister’s visit to Japan.


In a statement, the Ministry of External Affairs statement said that the agreement will pave for enhanced cooperation between India and Japan in energy security and clean energy.


With the coming into force of the pact, the US nuclear reactor maker Westinghouse can start building its AP1000 reactors in India. Already, land was allocated in Srikakulam district of Andhra Pradesh for the construction of six such reactors.
