There is something called 'Subcritical testing' for nuke devices. Interesting read.For first 2 Both Bus and RV are already tested and proven.
For small sized nukes, There's something called computer simulations of nuclear weapons and all advance countries design their new weapons using that technology and we do have robust computer softwares that simulates nuclear weapons design and it's detonation behaviour.
Also as a part of off set for Rafale fighter deal France gave access to their computer simulations to DRDO for further refinements. These softwares are so powerful you don't need the weapons to actually test on field and can directly send to production.
Also thank God you haven't heard Indian nuke as the only place you will hear it, it'll be across the border in either Pakistan or China if anyone of this country mess with India....
