India's nuclear reactors are highly secure
Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) Chairman Srikumar Banerjee, at the 28th Foundation Day function of Raja Ramanna Centre for Advanced Technology (RR-CAT), said, "All atomic energy plants in the country are totally secure as per international standards and are also capable of dealing with natural calamities like tsunami or earthquake." He said that the security of all nuclear plants was reviewed in the aftermath of the Fukushima incident and that there is no hurdle in the Jaitapur (Maharashtra) and Kudankulam (Tamil Nadu) projects on technical grounds. He added that there is a need to increase the pace of setting up of atomic energy-based power plants in the country.
