India set to triple nuclear power capacity by 2024

India Times:

Nuclear power generation capacity in the country is expected to reach nearly 15,000 MW by 2024 as the government has expedited the process of setting up new plants, Lok Sabha was informed today.

 In 2014, India's nuclear power generation capacity was 4,780 MW. 

Minister of State for PMO Jitendra Singh said a number of steps have been taken by the Narendra Modi government to fast-track all ongoing nuclear projects and setting up of new plants in different parts of the country.

Although Japan has been slow to restart reactors after the Fukishima disaster many other countries like India and China are moving forward with large nuclear fleet build outs.
