Just days before the Modi Administration completes its third year in office, the Indian Union Cabinet decided to build 10 new pressurized heavy water reactors (PHWR) as a part of their goal to increase their nuclear capacity to 14,000 megawatts. It is estimated that this will cost 70,000 crores (1 crore=10,000,000 rupees) and create 33,400 jobs. All this is part of India’s initiative to reduce emissions. Overall, this project is well-founded, and will hopefully succeed.
