India- To Join 4 Nuclear Clubs

India has made a strong pitch for membership of four exclusive nuclear clubs contending that it would help strengthen its export control systems and maintain the highest international standards of its nuclear programme. India’s hunt for nuclear submarine has finally come to an end as on Monday, it became the world’s sixth country after the US, Russia, France, UK and china to operate nuclear-powered submarines when the Russian Akula-II class submarine ‘K-152 Nerpa was commissioned into Indian Navy as INS Chakra on a 10-year lease under a secretive almost $1 billion contract inked in 2004. Defence ministry sources said INS Chakra, commissioned at the Primorye region in far south-eastern Russia in a ceremony attended by top Indian and Russian officials, would soon set sail for India. It will be based at Visakhapatnam, next to where INS Arihant is slated to begin extensive sea trials in February-March after the ongoing harbour-acceptance trials.
