There are about 19 Nuclear Power plants in India. About 4780 MW power is generated from these plants. These #NuclearPowerplants contribute about 3% of total power generation in the Country.
Irony is that according to the projections by the Government by 2040 Power generation of about 2 % would be added to the existing electric power generation capabilities of India because of this Indo US Nuclear deal.
More over, cost of production of Nuclear power is about Rs. 10/- per Unit and where as #Hydel power costs Rs. 1/- per Unit. And thermal power costs about Rs. 2/- per unit. Gas based power costs about Rs. 3/- per Unit.
Establishment of Nuclear power plants for enhancing Power generation is misleading.
During debate in Parliament on Indo US Nuclear deal when questioned about how the Government is weighing the Pluses and Minuses of the Deal Pranab Mukherji could not give a proper reply. He said that his BOYS are working on the issue ! That means New Delhi signed the Deal blind folded.
So, signing of the deal is a kind of signing Non Proliferation treaty.
It is disheartening to note that India's Nuclear program is now shelved if contents of ' India Year Books' are any indication.
