Environment minister Jairam Ramesh on Thursday said that Kudankulam nuclear power project will have to meet Coastal Zone Regulations.

HT on Thursday had reported that an environment ministry committee had refused to grant coastal approval to four reactors at Kudankulam project citing old data and on the ground that disposal of water may affect marine life.

"All CRZ parameters of the Kudankulam project will be reviewed," Ramesh said reacting to a report in HT.

The EAC had also considered security aspects following Fukushima nuclear accident in Japan where the nuclear reactors have been affected due to an unprecedented tsunami preceded by high magnitude earthquake.

The environment clearance to the four reactors of 1,000 MWs each, being constructed jointly by Indian and Russian governments was given in 2009.
