ISSUE BRIEF

India, ENR and NSG

July 05, 2011

Recently the Nuclear Suppliers Group amended their guidelines on transfers of enrichment and reprocessing (ENR) technologies. These changes have caused some concern in India. This Brief analyses the impact of these changes on India’s civil nuclear programme and concludes that these changes should have no impact on it. It also concludes that unless the NSG is willing to modify its guidelines to allow ENR transfers to India, India should not seek admission to NSG membeship even if offered.
