A French firm, which is to build six atomic reactors at Jaitapur, has submitted a fresh plan to the NPCIL proposing to share a larger role in the engineering aspect of the project, a top executive of the company said. The firm, EDF, and the NPCIL have also resolved to sign the General Framework Agreement (GFA) for the Jaitapur Nuclear Power Plant (JNPP) by the end of the year. French President Emmanuel Macron is likely to visit India by the year-end and the two sides are working to fast track the negotiations so that the GFA could be signed during that time, the EDF official, who did not wish to be quoted, said.
