In India, supporters of the deal cite economic considerations as one of the most important factors in their support for the deal.

[53] India`s stated goal is to increase nuclear power generation from the current 4,780 MWe to 20,000 MWe by 2020. On 25 August 2010, the Indian Parliament passed the Nuclear Damage Civil Liability Act,[54][55] which allows the operator to sue the supplier in the event of an accident due to technical defects in the plant. [56] Following the Nuclear Disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant in Japan, the issues of safe operation of the nuclear power plants, compensation in the event of a radiation leak accident, costs of disaster rectification, operator liability and supplier liability were again revealed.
