Lifting of Ban by Australian Government
The leadership in Australia has made statements to reverse the ban on export of uranium from Australia to India. This is reported in India. However, no formal communication has been received from Australia, so far. There are press reports that Australia is considering supply of Uranium to India. It is not possible, as yet, to provide the time by which Uranium for our reactors will be available from Australia.

The Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s office Sh V Narayanasamy gave this information in a written reply to a question by Shri R. C. Singh in Rajya Sabha today.
