ITER will be built mostly through in-kind contributions from the participant countries (Parties) in the form of components manufactured by the Parties and delivered/installed at ITER.
ITER-India is the Indian Domestic Agency (DA), formed with the responsibility to provide to ITER the Indian contribution.
ITER will be built mostly through in-kind contributions by the seven partners, meaning they will build their share of ITER components through an appropriately formed Domestic Agency (DA) and industries and deliver them to ITER for final assembly of the device. India will be contributing, like other partners except the host EU, about 9.1% of the ITER construction cost (EU pays about 45%).
Most of this will be in the form of components made by the Indian industry and delivered to ITER.Only a small part (~1%) will be paid in cash to a common fund for in-cash procurements by the ITER International Team.
ITER-India is the Indian DA formed to deliver India’s share of Procurement Packages to ITER.
