Delays and changes forced in India’s Nuclear Liability Bill

BJP forces Centre to defer Civil Nuclear Liability Bill,  By Anil Anand, New Delhi | Agency: DNA 11 Aug 2010, Bowing to opposition pressure, the government has decided against rushing through the controversial Civil Nuclear Liability Bill. It will, instead, hold further discussions with BJP and others.The draft bill was to be introduced in both Houses of parliament this week, but the plan has been now deferred…..

BJP has reportedly suggested redrafting the bill to include its two main suggestions — 1) that the Centre set up a claims commission with no cap on liability, as in this case the operator would either be the government or its public sector undertakings (PSUs) and 2) it oppose a mechanism to follow the convention on supplement compensation that would make it mandatory for India to contribute heavily to international organisations related to nuclear liabilities.
