India is to push the United States to extradite the former boss of US chemical group Union Carbide in relation to the 1984 Bhopal gas disaster, a minister said.

"India will make vigorous efforts to get Anderson repatriated," Minister for Urban Development Jaipal Reddy said, referring to former Union Carbide chief executive Warren Anderson, who lives in a New York suburb.

Reddy is part of a nine-member panel of ministers set up earlier this month to look into previous governments' handling of the disaster, which killed thousands and has left a toxic legacy in the central Indian city of Bhopal.

India has made repeated unsuccessful requests for the extradition of Anderson in the past.
