Moscow:  Legal hitches appear to have cropped up in the plans to set up two new reactors in the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project (KNPP) and a commercial agreement on it is unlikely to be signed at the Annual Summit between Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Russian President Vladimir Putin here tomorrow.





Government sources said all issues except one on the liability clause is yet to be resolved and lawyers on both sides are working on it.

“In any case it (agreement) won't be signed during the visit because it is a commercial agreement between NPCIL and Rosatom. They would like to do it separately,” they said.  

Russia, with whose collaboration the KNPP has been set up, is opposed to the project coming under the ambit of the Nuclear Civil Liability Law of India and wants it to be covered under the Inter-governmental agreement on the issue.
