As a developing nation we need energy to support our future industrial & domestic needs. But the way to generate this energy does not depend solely on nuclear energy. Throughout the world many developed countries are shutting down their nuclear reactors and starts looking into alternative ways to produce energy in a safer and greener way. India can achieve its future needs but it will not be the safe for the country’s internal security and safety. Koodankulam is a place in the Tirunelveli district in Tamil Nadu, India. It is situated 25 km north-east of Kanyakumari and 35 km from Nagercoil. The place is notable as the construction site of the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant. It is also the location of hundreds of windmills used for power generation, eight of which are located inside the grounds of the nuclear plant. Since the beginning of 2011, this place has been embroiled in a nuclear plant controversy over its safety by its people. Recently there have been several struggles by local people against the project. Local people are afraid that in case of a natural disaster the reactor may blast. This paper will deal about the various dimensions of Koodankulam Nuclear Power Plant with both its positive & negative sides.
