India on Saturday maintained that its liability law on nuclear damages was in accordance with international norms, days after US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton suggested that New Delhi should engage the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to make its liability regime at par with global requirement.

Maintaining that Clinton was expressing her country's view, government sources said India intends to proceed with its domestic law passed by Parliament, rules of which were being framed and added that there was no non-compatibility between India and the US on the issue.

They also said New Delhi was in discussions with Indian as well as American companies on the issue as it is very "serious" in meeting its energy demands.

Noting that the country has already inked the UN Convention on Supplementary Compensation on Nuclear Damages, the sources said it also intends to ratify it.
