Production of radioisotopes in India started way back in 1956 with commissioning of 1 MW research reactor named as APSARA. The production capability was augmented in 1963 when 40 MW CIRUS reactor attained its full rated capacity. During the early seventies, a strong need was felt for building another research reactor with higher neutron flux to meet the growing demand of radioisotopes.
