'India is estimated to have an arsenal of 90–110 nuclear
weapons. This figure is based on calculations of India's inventory
of weapon-grade plutonium and the number of operational
nuclear-capable delivery systems.
India's nuclear weapons are believed to be plutonium-based. As of
2015 India’s weapon-grade plutonium stockpile was estimated
to be between 0.57 and 0.61 tonnes The plutonium was produced at
the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) by the 40 megawatt-thermal
(MW(t)) heavy water CIRUS reactor, which was shut down at the end
of 2010, and the 100- MW(t) Dhruva heavy water reactor.
India has plans to build six fast breeder reactors, which will
significantly increase its capacity to produce plutonium for
weapons. A 500 megawatt-electric (MW(e)) prototype fast breeder
reactor (PFBR) is being built at the Indira Gandhi Centre for
Atomic Research (IGCAR) complex at Kalpakkam, Tamil Nadu. It is
expected to achieve first criticality during 2015, to be followed
by an extended period of testing'

Indian explosions by network averaged teleseismic P-wave

Office of the Principal Scientific Adviser to Government of India,
'Three underground nuclear explosions were detonated by India on 11
May, 1998. These were triggered simultaneously and comprised of a
thermonuclear device, a fission device and a subkiloton device in
spatially separated shafts. Initial estimates of the yields of
about 60 kt were derived from close in measurements and from
analysis of regional and teleseismic data. In 1998, Barker et al
, in a paper in Science, applied the technique of network
averaged teleseismic P-wave spectra from recordings from some
stations to show that the observed shape of the May 11, 1998 Indian
explosions (5/11/98, often referred to as POK-2 explosions) is
remarkably similar to that for the tests at the former Soviet
Semipalatinsk site and completely inconsistent with US Nevada test

Cooperation with India: Issues for Congress. / : Paul K. Kerr,
'India, which has not signed the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty
(NPT) and does not have International Atomic Energy Agency
safeguards on all nuclear material in peaceful nuclear activities,
exploded a "peaceful" nuclear device in 1974, convincing the world
of the need for greater restrictions on nuclear trade. The United
States created the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) as a direct
response to India's test, halted nuclear exports to India a few
years later, and worked to convince other states to do the same.
India tested nuclear weapons again in 1998. However, President Bush
announced July 18, 2005, he would "work to achieve full civil
nuclear energy cooperation with India" and would "also seek
agreement from Congress to adjust U.S. laws and policies," in the
context of a broader partnership with India.'
