While physicists across the world are still celebrating the recent detection of the Higgs particle, also known as 'The God Particle' by the CERN scientists, here's exciting news for India too. India-based Neutrino Observatory (INO) near Madurai in Tamil Nadu plans to release a sequel to the Higgs boson.

Indian neutrino lab to have world's biggest magnet

India is set to start work on a 250-million-dollar underground laboratory, called the Indian Neutrino Observatory (INO), which will be built in the Bodi West Hills Reserved Forest in the state of Tamil Nadu.
INO will be made of 50,000 tonnes of magnetised iron, dwarfing the 12,500-tonne magnet in the Compact Muon Solenoid detector at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland.

Coming as a major jolt to the country's scientist community after three long years of wait, the Centre has denied the Department of Atomic Energy permission to set up the ambitious Rs 900-crore India-based Neutrino Observatory (INO) project at Singara in Nilgiris as it falls in the proposed buffer zone of the Mudumalai Tiger Reserve (MTR). Instead, it has suggested its setting up at an alternate site - Suruliyar, in Tamil Nadu itself.

The Indian government has decided against locating a Neutrino Observatory (INO), an underground experimental physics project, at Singara in the Nilgiris district of Tamil Nadu. Instead, the Ministry of Environment and Forests has suggested that the project, proposed by the Department of Atomic Energy, be moved to a site near the Suruliyar falls in Theni district of Tamil Nadu.

India's environment minister Jairam Ramesh will visit the site of a proposed underground neutrino laboratory next month, to try to break the impasse between physicists and environmentalists over its construction.
The US$160-million India-based Neutrino Observatory (INO) was to have been completed by 2012 to study the elusive particles known as neutrinos. But its construction is mired in controversy over the wisdom of locating the facility in prime elephant and tiger habitat at Singara in the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve, 250 kilometres south of Bangalore.

India's ambitious Neutrino Observatory project has run into rough weather with the Tamil Nadu forest department raising objections on the proposal to locate it in the eco-sensitive Nilgiris biosphere.
The India-based Neutrino Observatory is awaiting final clearance from the forest department, INO spokesman Naba K Mandal said at a symposium on Mega Science Projects at the 96th Indian Science Congress here.
