The editorial “A deeply flawed bill” (March 16) has well highlighted the flawed nature of the Civil Nuclear Liability Bill, which is detrimental to the interests of the potential victims of nuclear disasters.

The UPA government is trying to rush through a Bill limiting the liability of the nuclear plant operator in the event of an accident. It is obvious that the U.S. nuclear industry is exerting enormous pressure on New Delhi to limit this liability to an absolute minimum as a pre-condition for operationalising the India-U.S. nuclear deal.
