Indian Nuclear Organizations

Organizations are an essential part to develop any technology. You can learn more about organizations in the domain of nuclear technology and their contributions.

Department of Atomic Energy

Department of Atomic Energy (DAE) has been engaged in the development of nuclear power technology, applications of radiation technologies in the fields of agriculture, medicine, industry, and basic research.

Bhabha Atomic Research Centre

Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) was instituted in January 1954 for a multidisciplinary research program essential for the ambitious nuclear program of India.

Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research

After Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research (IGCAR) is the second-largest research and development institution in India. They are responsible for the design and development of sodium-cooled fast breeder reactors for the second stage of the country’s three-stage nuclear program.

Atomic Energy Regulatory Board

The Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB) is a regulatory body tasked to watch over nuclear operations and provide guidelines for everything related to nuclear safety in India.

Atomic Minerals Directorate

Board of Radiation and Isotope Technology

Board of Radiation & Isotope Technology (BRIT) is an independent unit of the department of atomic energy which provides products and services based on radiation & isotopes for applications in healthcare, agriculture, research, and industry.

Variable Energy Cyclotron Centre

Variable Energy Cyclotron Centre (VECC), Kolkata is a research and development unit of the Department of Atomic Energy, Government of India. It is one of the premier and constituent institutions of Homi Bhabha National Institute.

Heavy Water Board

Heavy Water Board (HWB), a constituent unit of Industries and Minerals Sector under the Department of Atomic Energy, carries the prime mandate of supporting the Three-stage Indian Nuclear Power Program by production of Heavy Water (Deuterium Oxide), Enriched Boron, Nuclear grade sodium, Nuclear solvents for front end and back end fuel cycle, etc.

Board of Research in Nuclear Sciences

The Board of Research in Nuclear Sciences (BRNS) is an advisory body of the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE) to recommend financial assistance to universities, academic institutions, and national laboratories. The key objective is to encourage and promote scientific research in areas of relevance to the mandate of DAE in research groups outside DAE to derive benefits from their expertise.
