India plans to start exporting nuclear reactors and Indian Tumalapalli has 150,000 tons of uranium

1. India is offering its indigenous 220 and 540 megawatt heavy water reactor designs for export, although no specific customers have been identified.

"Only Canada, China, France, Japan, Russia, South Korea, and the United States export nuclear reactors. India may join this group in the near term," the Congressional Research Service (CRS) said in its latest report 'Nuclear Energy Cooperation with Foreign Countries Issue for Congress.'



2. Srikumar Banerjee, head of the Atomic Energy Commission, said a four-year long survey had indicated that the Tumalapalli mine near the state capital Hyderabad, which is scheduled to begin operating by late 2011, could provide up to 150,000 tons of uranium.
