The operations were carried out with curtailed manpower, managing round the clock shift operation, and maintaining essential services. New significant developments took place in 2021, with an aim of achieving the target of 22,480 MW by 2030-31.
As a boost to domestic and international suppliers to plan and prioritize their resources, the Government of India is planning to commission 20 new nuclear power plants, out of which 8 are presently under construction, which will generate additional capacity of 15,000 MW by 2032.
