NSG waiver to India

The "clean waiver" passed by the NSG, on September 6, 2008, was indeed a turning point to the futures of Indian energy crisis.
Crisis it is, for I am in India, and I know very well. We face here power cuts for 7 hours and 30 minutes. The clean chit given by NSG is really a great boon. Following the waiver, many big industrialists are keen to expand there own business and take nuclear power commercially. More than 35 public sector industries have already making plans about future power plants.

But, amidst all this, how can we forgive the amount of nuclear waste that is going to come out from all these new nuclear reactors. The question of maintaining the guidelines often comes to one's mind. The large amount of nuclear wastes will cause a lot of problems.

Though it may significantly reduce the gap between demand and production, it may come at the cost of billions of dollars.

Hope for the best!
