ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the implementation of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons. Based on the Treaty, countries that had developed nuclear weapons was tolerated by non-weapon states on account of the provision that elimination of nuclear weapons would be pursued as a goal of the Treaty. Developing countries seek for the implementation of Article VI which would remove the prospect of another nuclear testing. The campaign of India for global denuclearization is symptomatic of the country's ruling elite.
