'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'

The Security Council [is], 'Gravely concerned at the challenge that the nuclear tests conducted by India and then by Pakistan constitute to international efforts aimed at strengthening the global regime of non-proliferation of nuclear weapons, and also gravely concerned at the danger to peace and stability in the region,'

On Yields of May 11, 1998 Indian explosions by network averaged teleseismic P-wave spectra. / : S.K.Sikka.
Office of the Principal Scientific Adviser to Government of India, Delhi.
'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 [1], 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 site'.

CRS: U.S. Nuclear Cooperation with India: Issues for Congress. / : Paul K. Kerr, 2010.
'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.'
