Indian’s nuclear power plant list

Tarapur Atomic Power Plant-1 (TAPS-1) is the first Nuclear power plant in India. This plant is operational since October 1969 and is situated in Boisar, Maharashtra.

Nuclear Power is the fifth-largest source of generating electricity in India after coal, gas, wind power and hydroelectricity. At present, India has 22 operating nuclear reactors with an installed capacity of 6,780 MW in 7 nuclear power plants. Asia’s first nuclear reactor is the Apsara Research Reactor situated in Mumbai. The domestic uranium reserve in India is small and the country is dependent on uranium imports from other countries to provide fuel to its nuclear power industry. Since the 1990s, Russia has been a major supplier of nuclear fuel to India.
