The News in its front page headline - 'Atomic energy deal: US accedes to Indian demands' - reported that it was a much anticipated breakthrough on the commercial implementation of their landmark agreement, the two countries enter "a new strategic phase of co-production of some defence projects".

Rain fails to dampen the spirits on Republic Day 26.1.2015 DNA: Urban Tales
Rain threatened to dampen the excitement around U.S. President Barack Obama's landmark visit to India as thousands of troops prepared on Monday for a dazzling military parade where he will be the chief guest. The first U.S. president to attend the annual show of military might that was long associated with the anti-Americanism of the Cold War, Obama spent the first day of his visit on Sunday bonding with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and sealing a clutch of deals.  The two leaders announced plans to unlock billions of dollars in nuclear trade and to deepen defence ties, steps they hope will establish an enduring strategic partnership. Most significant was an agreement on two issues that, despite a groundbreaking 2006 pact, had stopped U.S. companies from setting up nuclear reactors in India and had become one of the major irritants in bilateral relations. "Mobama breaks N-deadlock," the Mail Today newspaper said on its front page, which carried a photograph of Modi and Obama hugging each other warmly. The ...

'We have a deal' - insurance may unlock India-US atomic trade 26.1.2015 DNA: Money
Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Barack Obama unveiled a plan centred on insurance on Sunday that they hope will convince US companies to build nuclear power stations in India, but stopped short of  demands to soften a liability law. With the 1984 Bhopal gas tragedy still fresh in India's mind, parliament five years ago passed a law that makes equipment suppliers ultimately responsible for an accident, a deviation from international norms that the companies found hard to swallow. India's top diplomat, foreign secretary Sujatha Singh, said the new plan was "squarely within our law". "We have reached an understanding, the deal is done," she said at a media briefing. Details of the new plan were sketchy, but Indian and U.S. diplomats said the idea was to transfer the financial risk to insurers in case of an accident. "The India nuclear insurance pool is a risk transfer mechanism which is being formed by GIC Re and four other public sector undertakings in the general insurance business in ...
