'Dept misled Cabinet on K'kulam reactors'

 Global environmental agency Greenpeace has alleged that the Department of Atomic Energy misled the Cabinet Committee on Security to get the financial approval to build up two additional reactors at Kudankulam.

The agency has said that the department falsely informed that an insurance package for proposed reactors is being worked out with the General Insurance Corporation of India.
“According to an RTI response from General Insurance Corporation of India (GIC), Kudankulam reactors will not be insured by them. In its response, GIC stated that, “No insurance is offered by GIC for unit number 3&4 at Kudankulam”. It even goes on to say that “No official communication between NPCIL and GIC pertaining to the issue has taken place”, the Greenpeace said in a statement on Tuesday.

The RTI request was filed by Greenpeace on the 12th of March.
