Safety norms in place at KNPP, SC told

India’s atomic regulator on Tuesday told the Supreme Court that the enhanced safety measures (ESM) recommended by a task force in the wake of the Fukushima nuclear power plant accident in Japan were not a precondition for the operationalisation of the Kudankulan Nuclear Power Plant in Tirunelveli district of Tamil Nadu.

Attorney General G E Vahanvati, referring to a series of meetings held by the Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB), told the bench of justices K S Radhakrishnan and Dipak Misra that no sane man can say that ESM were necessary before loading of fuel in reactors I and II.
