In India, major accelerator related programs are being pursued at BARC/TIFR-Mumbai, VECC-Calcutta, NSCDelhi and CAT-Indore. At BARC/TIFR, research programs are being pursued with the 14MV Pelletron accelerator and at NSC-Delhi the 15MVpelletron accelerator is being used to carry out a variety of accelerator based research studies. At VECC-Calcutta, the existing cyclotron is being upgraded to also deliver heavy ion beams through injection by a ECR ion source. Work towards installing a K=500 superconducting cyclotron is also in progress at VECC, Calcutta. At CAT-Indore, a synchrotron radiation facility based on 450 MeV electron storage ring is being commissioned and work is also in progress to build a synchrotron source based on a 2.0 GeV storage ring in the near future. We have also the international collaboration programs, particularly involving high energy accelerator facilities abroad. This report gives an overview of the different accelerator based programs in India.
