Concerns raised over India's interests in the US-India civil nuclear deal

...US-India civilian nuclear agreement that generated huge controversy...The Hyde Act...seeking to protect Indian interests insisted, in the wake of the Bhopal gas tragedy, that the liability for compensation in case of a nuclear accident rested not with the operator (India) but the supplier (the US nuclear companies). It also ensured that the US did not have the rights to track the nuclear fuel being used in Indian reactors. Both these provisions were not acceptable to the US, the reverse was not acceptable to India, and the deal fell through...PM Modi and US President Barack Obama...addressed a joint press conference and again the nuclear deal emerged as the centrepiece of the ‘new understanding’ and as both said ‘natural partnership.’ But they gave no details...Foreign secretary Sujatha Singh...declared that the deal was done, but was unable to give details that could conclusively prove that this had been done without compromising Indian interests....The details remain vague, strange.
