Dumping of N-waste at KGF ruled out

The centre made it clear that it has no plans to dump Nuclear waste (N-waste) from Kudankulam Nuke Power plant in the defunct gold mines of Kolar Gold Fields (KGF) in Karnataka. The reported move by the Govt to dump the waste at the KGF was opposed by various political parties.

The team of experts clarified that since KGF lacks a rocky (granite) background and has waterlogging area, the site is not safe for dumping the N-waste.
