Uranium and thorium are the major nuclear minerals. There are rich reserves of uranium in the states of Jharkhand, Rajasthan and Maharashtra. Thorium is produced from limestone and monazite deposits largely found in the coastal sands of Kerala and Tamil Nadu. 

The nuclear power plants in India :

  • Tarapur, Maharashtra. 
  • Rawatbhata, Rajasthan. 
  • Kalpakkam and Koodamkulam, Tamil Nadu. 
  • Kaiga, Karnataka. 
  • Kakrapaara, Gujarat.
