India seeks details on nuclear reactors from US, French wooers

The information is sought as "proof of efficacy".

India has requested American and French nuclear companies to provide referential details of functional reactors they designed to prove the efficacy.

These firms have proposed to build atomic plants in the country, with EDF proposing six nuclear European Pressurised Reactors.

Reports say that French company EDF and US firm Westinghouse are still not prepared with fully operational "reference plants" before a final agreement could be signed.
