NEW DELHI: Parliament adopted the Civil Liability for Nuclear Damage Bill, with the Rajya Sabha approving the legislation by voice vote on Monday, paving the way for overseas companies to set up nuclear reactors in the country.
The government's desire to get this legislation through was a major reason for Parliament to extend its sitting by two days Prime Minister Manmohan Singh sat through the debate, even prompting Minister of State for Science and Technology Prithviraj Chavan during his reply. The Left and the TDP voted against the Bill. A division pressed by the Left and the TDP saw 123 votes (subject to final correction) turning down their amendments and 23 favouring them, with two abstentions.
