What is the 2008 Indo-US Nuclear Deal?

A historic agreement between India and the US to cooperate in civil nuclear energy.

Why is it significant?

India agreed to separate its civil and military nuclear facilities and place civilian ones under IAEA safeguards.

Current Status of the Deal:

French Involvement:

EDF showed interest in building reactors in India, but disagreements over accident liability persist.

India’s Nuclear Capacity:

India currently has 19 operational reactors with plans for more, contributing 3.1% of its electricity.
