Discussion on the Nuclear posture of India

Twelve years ago, on 11 May 1998, India had conducted the Shakti series of Nuclear tests.These had taken the world by surprise and firmly catapulted India into the league of major global powers.To commemorate this seminal event, the VIF organised a seminar on "India's Evolving Nuclear Posture in a Dynamic Regional and International Nuclear Environment". Mr Satish Chandra, former Deputy NSA, traced the evolution of India's Nuclear policy and its future prospects. Other speakers carried out a review of the developments in Force Structures and doctrines in India's neighbourhood and the impact that this could have on India's own force structuring and doctrinal development.The aspect of the Review of the NPT and India's stance on the FMCT was also analysed in detail. There was intensive debate and discussion on these vital aspects that threw up some very interesting insights and fresh viewpoints.
