Re: India-US Strategic News and Discussion

What if the goal was to get a "reaction" from GOI? It's far fetched to think that US has not gamed the consequences of their action.

Re: India Nuclear News And Discussion

For a reactor built in US versus India, if profits are the same then why not the same cap on liability. The argument about value of $10 billion in USA being lower than what will be in India will also not hold good as the population that would be affected will unfortunately and most likely be higher ...

Re: India Nuclear News And Discussion

After reading Arun's post, I did some search on liability Caps on running nuclear reactors in US. The amount is $10 billion in some form of layered structure, guided by "Price Anderson" law originally drafted in 1957, and was extended for another 20 years in 2005. Google did throw up quite...
