Rs 1,000 crore project to detect gravitational waves awaits cabinet approval

Published At: 2014-07-19 10:26 -
Over the next few months, the Modi Cabinet will examine proposals for projects that its predecessor should have cleared earlier. It would be a mixed bag: some truly contentious issues, some routine appointments and some other complex schemes that require enormous investments. There is one project that is far removed from the public eye, as non-controversial as it gets, yet expensive and esoteric, and still exclusive to a few nations.
