Abstract:  This study, conducted in collaboration with various organizations and experts, delves into the complex landscape of radioactive waste management in India. The research sheds light on the challenges and practices associated with the nuclear fuel cycle, waste generation, and its implications on human health and the environment.The study maps the civilian nuclear program’s fuel cycle, scrutinizing waste generation points and evaluating existing waste management practices. It provides a comparative analysis on a global scale, emphasizing critical issues and potential impacts. Noteworthy is the exclusion of waste generated from the nuclear defense program, displacement concerns, and safety issues, focusing solely on civilian nuclear waste and its threats to society.
