Protest against Nuclear Liability Law
Several global atomic energy companies have registered their protest against the Nuclear Liability Law of India.

Following the passage of the Civil Liability for Nuclear Damage Act, 2010, some potential suppliers have raised certain issues mainly relating to appl;ication of ‘operators right of recourse’ as provided in Section 17 and ‘Act to be in addition to any other law’ as provided in Section 46 of the Act.

The government is taking necessary action to implement India’s nuclear energy programme, including nuclear power projects in technical cooperation with other countries on the basis of the Civil Liability for Nuclear Damage Act, 2010. The Government is also in the process of framing rules as provided under said Act.

Shri V. Narayanasamy, Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions and in the Prime Minister’s Office gave this information in a written reply to a question by Shri Arjun Ray and Shri Anant Kumar Hegde in Lok Sabha today.
