India to build a ‘Strategic Uranium Reserve’


  • India is working on creating a ‘strategic uranium reserve’ to ensure its atomic power reactors do not face shortage of the crucial nuclear fuel.
  • The reserve pool could be anywhere between 5000 MT to 15,000 MT which can last for 5-10 years.
  • A proposal for stocking 5000 MT of uranium has been sent to the Cabinet for approval but the cap is likely to increase in the coming years.
  • Uranium from Kazakhstan will largely meet the current demand.
  • The United States will support an Indian effort to develop a strategic reserve of nuclear fuel to guard against any disruption of supply over the lifetime of India’s reactors.
