India & Russia yesterday (March 12, 2010) agreed on a Road map for construction of reactors of Russian design in India. The road map outlines the timelines for steps to be taken for the construction of Kudankulam units 3 & 4, provides for construction of two more reactors at Kudankulam (units 5 & 6) and two reactors at Haripur, West Bengal during 12th Five Year Plan. Construction of more reactors of Russian design will be considered during formulation of the 13th Five Year Plan. Besides, the road map calls for progressive indigenization of supplies for the reactors to be constructed in collaboration with Russia beyond the level already envisaged in Kudankulam units 3 & 4.
