 India has very modest deposits of Uranium and some of the world's largest sources of thorium.

Three stage of Indian Nuclear Power Programme to suit the country's resource profile ▶

FIRST STAGE - Heavy water reactors fulled by Natural Uranium would produce Plutonium .

SECOND STAGE- Initially fulled by mix plutonium from the first stage and natural uranium.                  This uranium would transmute into more plutonium and one sufficient stocks have been built up, thorium would be introduced into the fuel cycle to convert it into Uranium-233 for third stage.

FINAL  STAGE- Mix of thorium and uranium fuels the reactor .The thorium transmits to U-233 as in second stage,  which power the reactor. Fresh thorium can replace the depleted thorium -fulled reactor even though it is U-233 that is undergoing fissile to produce electricity. 

Advantages of thorium over otger nuclear fuel ▶

1- Thorium reactors produce far less waste than present- day- reactors.

2- Ability to burn up most highly radioactive and long lasting minor actinides that makes nuclear waste from light water reactor a nuisance to deal with.

3- Miruscale waste that is generated to toxic for only three or four hundred years rather than thousand of years.

4- Thorium reactors are cheaper because they have higher burn up.
