The Supreme Court on Monday asked NGOs Common Cause and Centre for
Public Interest Litigation (CPIL) to first approach the Prime Minister
or the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE) for addressing their concerns
on the safety and cost effectiveness of nuclear plants being set up in
An apex court bench of Chief Justice SH Kapadia and Justice Swatanter
Kumar said this to counsel Prashant Bhushan after he sought the
court's direction to the central government to put on hold the nuclear
plants being set up in the wake of the India-US nuclear deal till
their safety and cost benefit analysis is carried out.
Chief Justice Kapadia, however, made it clear that if the petitioners
have anything to say about an individual nuclear power plant, they can
approach the high court of the state where the project is being set
The court adjourned the matter till Friday after Bhushan said that
former chairman of Atomic Energy Regulatory Board A Gopalakrishnan had
written several letters to the PM on the safety of nuclear plants.
