With seven reactors under construction and another 20 to 30 to come by 2020, India is on track to become a nuclear powerhouse. After passing the Indo-U.S. nuclear agreement in 2008, effectively ending a 34-year U.S. ban on supplying nuclear technology and fuel to India, the country moved forward with plans to increase its nuclear capacity ten-fold. Though the government is emphasizing the need to ramp up nuclear projects, they face considerable grassroots opposition. A petition calling to suspend nuclear expansion until the safety of existing plants has been checked made its way to the Supreme Court, delaying work on at least one of the proposed plants.
