US to look to India for changes in N-Liability Bill

By The Assam Tribune

WASHINGTON, Sept 8 (PTI) - US has said it is looking at India to see what changes can be made in certain provisions in the Nuclear Liability Bill, which was recently passed by the Parliament.

"We continue our discussions with the Indian Government on this issue and we note that Indian business leaders are concerned about some specific aspects of the law that was just passed by Parliament," State Department spokesman PJ Crowley said.

"We will look to the Indian Government to see what changes can be made," Crowley told reporters in response to a question at his daily news conference.

On August 30, Parliament had adopted the nuclear liability bill with the government insisting that the compensation package for victims matches that of the US and it was still open to accommodate some suggestions.
