We estimate the amount of nuclear waste generated by different steps in the fuel cycle followed in the Indian nuclear programme, based on standard methodologies and public sources of information. The basic input in the case of power reactors is the amount of electricity they have produced. For research reactors, the inputs are their rated capacities and an average capacity factor. While our waste estimates are based on assumptions and the limited amount of public data available, it would be easy to modify the estimates, should new information become available.
