Moscow: A deal for building four more nuclear reactors at Kudankulam in Tamil Nadu will be among the key pacts that will be signed between India and Russia during Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s visit to the country beginning today, a senior Kremlin official has said.
The signing of deal for building four more nuclear reactors at Kudankulam to enhance its capability to six thousand megawatt from the initially projected 2,000 MW has been identified, the official was quoted as saying by the ITAR-TASS.
An agreement for the joint production of a multi-role transport aircraft for the armed forces of the two nations under the MTA (Multirole Transport Aircraft) project has also been identified by the Kremlin officials as one of key pacts to be signed during Singh’s visit.
After a long bureaucratic delay over the specifics, India and Russia are also to sign an agreement on the utilisation of rupee debt repayments funds by Russia for investments in India.
