Uranium Surplus

But there is concern that the Deal would also

provide additional U for military purposes.

India has offered to place under safeguards 8

more PHWRs worth 1760 MWe.

If the Deal comes into being, they can obtain fuel

for all these from abroad. From this it is argued

that India could divert its domestic Uranium for

producing W-Gr Plutonium in the unsafeguarded

reactors.

But this depends on how much surplus U is

actually produced from their mines.
