    As long as democrats are in office we should not be expecting too much on nuclear deal. Let's just hope they don't come to power next term.

    This deal has been dead ever since Obama was elected.

    Americans are trying to put pressure because India is partnering with non-American firms for setting up nuclear plants.

    Although the Nuclear liability clause will have to be reworked; no firm in the world will agree to such a liability clause.

    Let Obama go and Republicans beat soundly Hillary Clinton, until then this deal will be under question all the time.

    Maybe we should cancel this deal from our side and get the fuel somewhere else, like Australia. That will teach USA a lesson.

    The Civil Liability for Nuclear Damage Act, 2010 is an Indian law. To operate in India, one has to abide by this law, just like Indian companies and citizens living in the US abide by US Federal and State Laws.

    Here is the PDF of the Bill passed by the Lok Sabha: http://www.prsindia.org/uploads/media/Nuclear/Nuclear Damage BIll, 2010.pdf
