India's first atomic reactor was apsara. It was also the first nuclear reactor of Asia. apsara went critical at Bhabha Atomic Researce Centre (BARC), Trombay on Aug.4 1956. It heralded the arrival of India's nuclear energy program.

Where it is located ?

Deepak Ray said: (Mar 25, 2014)  
BARC has consistently maintained the following reactors:

Apsara 1956.
Dhruva 1985.

Can anyone please give more information on the reactors?

What is atomic reactor?

Mehak said: (Oct 16, 2014)  
A nuclear reactor is a system that contains and controls sustained nuclear chain reactions. Reactors are used for generating electricity, moving aircraft carriers and submarines, producing medical isotopes for imaging and cancer treatment, and for conducting research.

India's first nuclear reactor is Apsara.

But, first fast acting neutron reactor is Kamini.

Indians first nuclear reactor was Apsara. Apsara went critical at Bhabha atomic research centre at trombay on august 4, was built entirely by Indian engineers in record duration of 15 months.

It is a swimming -pool -type reactor loaded with enriched uranium as fuel. it is the first nuclear reactor in India and in Asia.
Kamini is abbreviated as Kalpakkam mini reactor is a research reactor located at Indira Gandhi centre for atomic research(IGCAR) in kalpakkam India .it is a joint venture of bhabha atomic research centre and IGCAR which produces a 30kw of thermal energy.

DHRUVA is the largest nuclear reactor associated with Bhabha atomic research centre located at Mumbai
It is India's generator of weapons-grade Plutonium.
Zerlina(zero energy reactor for lattice investigations and new assemblies) was built for studying various lattice parameters of natural fuelled uranium heavy moderated reactors.

Can anyone explain the working of atomic reactor?

Amar said: (Mar 24, 2017)  
In which place Kamini atomic reactor Is located?

Anil said: (Mar 31, 2017)  
Thanks for lot for giving these information.

1). KAMINI Reactor is located in Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research, (IGCAR) Kalpakkam in Tamilnadu.

2). The reactor fuel is U233 (Thorium converted). Not enriched Uranium.

3). This is not a fast neutron Reactor. This is an only thermal reactor.

4). This is used for Neutron Radiography of nuclear spent fuels. Space components. Etc.

5). This is the only operating reactor in the world by U233.

6). This is our Indian Third generation reactor. The first generation is thermal reactor by U233, The second generation fast reactors bu U238 and Pulutonim, The third generation is Thorium convered U233.

K.R.Sekar said: (May 16, 2017)  
The first generation is thermal reactor by U235 (Natural Uranium) not U233.
