The government has approved a public-private partnership for the first time, in which the Department of Atomic Energy will produce radioisotopes for food preservation and cancer treatment.

Our atomic strength
Homi J. endowed with vision The organization that Bhabha founded, has a lot of work, especially on the strategic front, is the top secret.
It was heavily dependent on the US and Canada for nuclear power technology. But when these countries broke the agreement to work together in technology and boycotted the country in protest against India’s 1974 nuclear tests, the AEC (Atomic Energy Commission) sought to meet India’s growing energy needs. Mastery of this technology to manufacture pressurized heavy water reactors (PHWR).
Of the 22 reactors operating today, 16 have been built entirely in India.
Last month, Atomic Energy Corporation of India Limited (NPCIL) announced that its first 700 MW reactor at Kokrapar has achieved ‘criticality’, a critical condition where the nuclear reaction continues on its own.
Government has approved a Public-Private Partnership for the first time
After the Indo-US nuclear deal came to fruition in 2008, the government allowed Russia, France and the United States to bid for the construction of new j plants, but it decided to approve NPCIL to build 16 power plants of 700 mV. Whose total capacity will be 11,200 MW. The government has approved a public-private partnership for the first time, in which the Department of Atomic Energy will produce radioisotopes for food preservation and cancer treatment.
- Built strategic nuclear weapons technology, including testing of the 1998 hydrogen bomb.
- Mastered the technology of manufacturing nuclear reactors when India faced restrictions on transfer of technology due to the 1974 nuclear tests. It now has 22 reactors
-It has transferred technology to supply most of the main equipment to Indian companies besides manufacturing expertise.
For the first time, it has opened its state-of-the-art medical isotope facilities for PPP cooperation, which will lead to participation of private pharmaceutical companies and food radiation industry.
Now private players have been given opportunities to carry out these activities through a new institution called In-Space or Indian National Space Promotion and Certification Center.

As part of self-reliant India, the government has approved private players to carry out activities in space. Currently, all the space activities in India are carried out only by the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), which includes the manufacture, launch and service of rockets and satellites.
Now private players have been given opportunities to carry out these activities through a new institution called In-Space or Indian National Space Promotion and Certification Center. Through in-space, they can apply for these activities and get permission. Not only this, they can use the facilities of ISRO for this. Now private industry has come at a level of equality with ISRO.
We can do this with full confidence
Because ISRO has developed self-sufficiency in terms of rocket technology and satellites that have collided with the best in the world. Most of these technologies were not available to us. The countries that had these, they kept them hidden and guarded them.
Even if they had given this technology to us, they would have charged huge money instead. So we had to get them ourselves. We were able to achieve this success because we work as a team and take it as a national mission.
