India to collaborate with Russia for developing Rooppur nuclear plant in Bangladesh

India is collaborating with Russia for the construction of the 2,400 MW Rooppur nuclear power plant in Bangladesh. This is the first Indo-Russian initiative to develop atomic energy projects in third world countries. The project is Bangladesh’s first atomic energy project and post-completion, the country will become the third South Asian country after India and Pakistan to harness nuclear energy for power generation. Earlier, in April 2017, India and Bangladesh signed a civil nuclear cooperation deal along with two more agreements pertaining to the supply and manufacturing of equipment for the power plant.
