Nuclear Energy’s Cost-Benefit Analysis for India: Shankar Sharma’s Letter to the CAG

Shankar Sharma | Keeping in view the humongous costs associated with the large number of nuclear reactors being built/proposed, the long term implications of these projects on our communities, the global level rejection of nuclear power as a national level energy policy, and the absence of a rational debate on nuclear power policy at the societal level in our country, I would like to emphasise that our country is in urgent need of a diligent examination of all the associated issues by the apex auditing body of the country, and subsequently followed by effective discussions in the Parliament. Such a diligent analysis at a policy level has become an imperative before the country can continue to invest massive capital into the nuclear power sector.
