India Must Black-list French Nuclear Suppliers: Former Power Secretary writes after Exposé in France
Dr EAS Sarma | These are serious matters on which DAE and NPCIL cannot afford to feign ignorance and pretend that the public here in India would never come to know about these developments.

Dr. EAS Sarma | The defects in Flamanville reactors are substantial defects with a possible impact on all existing EPR projects currently underway. India has signed an MOU with AREVA/EDF to build six of these reactors in India.
