New Delhi: With suppliers raising concerns over certain aspects of the Nuclear Liability Act, the Department of Atomic Energy has decided to look into these worries to weed out "unnecessary liability".





The DAE has formed two committees to find out a middle path on the controversial issue keeping in view the concerns of foreign companies and Indian Atomic Industrial Forum (IAIF), of which NPCIL and companies that manufacture components for nuclear power plants are a part.

Sources said the recommendations made by the committee could also help weed out "unnecessary liability" which may not be applicable to many suppliers.

"There is ample degree of redundancy in the liability law, which cannot be applicable to all the suppliers. So this should be approached in a scientific and rational manner," a top DAE official told PTI.
