Since Indian nuclear scenario is a three stage programme. What is the progress about second and third stage of the programme?
As a part of second stage programme, a 15MWe FBTR has been commissioned. A design of 500 MWe Prototype Fast Breeder Reactor(PFBR) is in progress. Regarding the use of U 233 Thorium cycle in third stage, R & D activities with prototype model are continuing. Thorium rods are also being irradiated in thermal reactors such MAPS, NAPS and KAPS for viability of extracting U 233 from Thorium.
