India gets NSG waiver, joins N-Club

After three days of deliberations at Vienna, the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) on Saturday granted India an essential waiver that will enable the country to carry out nuclear commerce, thus ending 34 years of nuclear apartheid imposed after the 1974 Pokharan nuclear tests.

The unprecedented decision of the 45-nation NSG giving exemption to a country which has not signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) is a watershed in the operationalisation of the Indo-US nuclear deal that will now go to the US Congress for approval.
