I believe that they do. That being said, I do not know if they are a signatory to the NNPT. If so, then they should be inspected. If not, then we shouldn't be trading nuclear material/tech with them.
Operating India?s eight unsafeguarded PHWRs in such a [conservative] regime would bequeath New Delhi with some 12,135?13,370 kilograms of weapons-grade plutonium, which is sufficient to produce between 2,023?2,228 nuclear weapons over and above those already existing in the Indian arsenal. Although no Indian analyst, let alone a policy maker, has ever advocated any nuclear inventory that even remotely approximates such numbers, this heuristic exercise confirms that New Delhi has the capability to produce a gigantic nuclear arsenal while subsisting well within the lowest estimates of its known uranium reserves.
