Bahadurgarh (Haryana): The country's first Global Centre for Nuclear Energy, an initiative announced by Prime Minister in April, will come up in Bahadurgarh town on the border of Haryana and Delhi.

The Centre will be set up on priority basis at 125 acres while 80 acres will be kept for residential plots. The project will take minimum three years to complete, said project director Dr J P Shrivastva, who led a six-member-team that visited Jassaurkheri and Kheri Jassuar villages today.

Four schools will be established here to carry out research in the field of nuclear security, radiological conservation and use of radiostopes techniques, he said, adding that the Centre would be set up on the pattern of Bhabha Atomic Reseach Centre, Mumbai.

The state-of-the-art facility will conduct research and development of design systems that are intrinsically safe, secure, proliferation resistant and sustainable.

Shrivastva also expressed satisfaction over the connectivity of the site for the proposed centre.

The prime minister had announced setting up of the Centre while addressing the plenary session of the Nuclear Security Summit convened by US President Barack Obama in Washington in April.
