India's research into heavy water production began in the 1960s under the Chemical Engineering division of the?Bhabha Atomic Research Center?(BARC) and was later continued by the Heavy Water Division (HWD) of BARC. Initially, the HWD established a pilot plant to study the Hydrogen-Sulfide water exchange process. While these studies were in progress, the?Nangal Heavy Water Plant?in Punjab was commissioned in August 1962. The Department of Atomic Energy's (DAE) ambitious program to supply nuclear power to India required the establishment of a number of heavy water production plants. At the time, it was felt that the planning and construction of the heavy water plants would be best conducted by a separate organization.
