Points / Full Points (%)

Nuclear Disarmament

4/98 (4.1%)

India is estimated to possess approximately 120-130 nuclear warheads, having added incrementally. It also continues to actively develop nuclear delivery vehicles, including ICBM and SLBM, and to produce fissile material for nuclear weapons. India voted positively to some extent in the UNGA Resolutions regarding nuclear disarmament. However, it neither participated in the negotiation conference of the TPNW, nor signed the treaty. India maintains a moratorium on nuclear test explosions, but refuses to sign the CTBT.

Nuclear Non-Proliferation

15/43 (34.9%)

India acceded to the IAEA Additional Protocol, in which no provision for complementary access visits is stipulated. India’s quest for membership in the NSG is supported by some member states, but the group has not yet made a decision.

Nuclear Security

22/41 (53.7%)

India has ratified almost all nuclear security-related treaties. Also, India is advancing the introduction of the recommendation measures of INFCIRC/225/Rev.5, such as efforts to foster nuclear security culture. In addition, India makes financial contributions to the NSF as a contribution to the IAEA nuclear security program.
