Emmanuel Macron In India: Agreement On Jaitapur Nuclear Plant Likely To Be Signed During French President's Visit

New Delhi: India and France are likely to sign a framework agreement for expediting the Jaitapur nuclear power plant project during French President Emmanuel Macron’s visit next month, sources from the Indian side have said.

The six-reactor project with a capacity of 1650-MW each will be the largest nuclear power park in the country.

“An agreement is expected to be signed between French company EDF and the Nuclear Power Corporation of India (NPCIL — a nuclear power-generating PSU under the Department of Atomic Energy).
