Panel nod to nuke safety bill

In what may boost public confidence in nuclear energy as a source of electricity, a Parliamentary panel on Wednesday approved a legislation to set up an independent Nuclear Safety Regulatory Authority (NSRA) that would regulate all civilian nuclear installations including nuclear power plants.

The Parliamentary Standing Committee on Science and Technology, Environment and Forest, approved the Nuclear Safety Regulatory Authority Bill 2011 with minor corrections though two CPM members in the panel disagreed  with its recommendations and wanted a thorough overall of the bill.
