an end-of-the year summary it reports that ac, atonic energy establishment has been safe-up and now is functioningcres of Trombay,iles from the cityite, which visiting scientists claim is unique. On one side are the waters of Bombay harbor, into which two new piers now Jut out for landing machinery and materials. ange of hills isolates the site from all neighboring land. Tha Trombay Establishment is to consist of three main groups -Physics, Chemistry and Engineeringtaff.

Tha Physics Group, during the yaar, has helped construct simulators forwimming pool and the Canada-India reactor andeactor film badge IS1 service and laboratory monitoring for personnel. Intense research work also has been undertaken in theoretical physics and applied mathematics, nuclear physics and reactor control.

A Metallurgical Division was set up last year and work has been done on the de-alga of equipment and on the production of uranium and thorium, metals, powders and alloys. 6 program also included thermal and corrosion studies and studies on uranium, zirconium and canning. This Division also designed and fabricated components for tbe Indian reactor.

The Chemical Group isV high electron dafr action camera. It has bandied core0 mineral samples. The complete monazite structure is under study.

Plans have been discussed and finalized to set up:

pilot plant for the extraction of uranium ore fromat Ghatslla, East India.

pilot plant for the production of titanium spongethe rutile and ilmonite sands available In the country.
