| | Updated on: Apr 02, 2014

Nuclear Power Corporation of India Ltd (NPCIL) has been conducting programmes to generate awareness on the positive aspects of nuclear energy, a senior official of the corporation said here.

“Nuclear energy is very safe and it is the future of the country. There should not be any doubts in the use of nuclear power for the development of the country,” NPCIL Outstanding Scientist and Executive Director (Procurement) O P Arora told PTI here yesterday.

“After protests from people at Kudankulam, Tamil Nadu, and at Mithivirdi village in Bhavnagar district of Gujarat against nuclear power projects, the NPCIL has been conducting public awareness programmes to create awareness amongst the local population and remove doubts from their minds on safety of the nuclear power plant,” he said.

“The awareness programmes cover issues like nuclear power plant, radiation, environment impact, nuclear safety. The information is disseminated through lectures, films, pamphlets and plant visits. Quiz contests are also conducted for students,” Arora said.
