Indira Gandhi Atomic Research Center. Site of Fast Breeder Test Reactor and plutonium extraction plants. Also the location of Madras 1 and 2 nuclear power reactors, which can produce plutonium for nuclear weapons.

12.557485°N, 80.175669°E

Kakrapar

Kakrapar 1 and 2 nuclear power reactors are not subject to International Atomic Energy Agency inspection and therefore available to produce weapons-grade plutonium.

21.2365°N, 73.3501°E

Narora

Narora 1 and 2 nuclear power reactors are not subject to International Atomic Energy Agency inspection and therefore available to produce weapons-grade plutonium.
