A slew of American companies today indicated their keenness to invest over 50 billion dollars in India’s nuclear programme once the civil nuclear deal between the two countries is approved by the US Congress.

The companies, participating in an Indo-US business meet here, showed strong interest in involving themselves in India’s programme to hike nuclear power generation capacity to 50,000 MW by 2030.
