The Radiation Detection Systems installed in a mobile platform will have the capability to search and detect 'gamma emitting radionuclides'.

The mobile radiation detection vehicles are intended to help the police forces to detect any inadvertent presence of radioactivity in public domain. This system will also act as a deterrent for unauthorized usage of radioactive materials.

The above information was given by the Minister of State in the Ministry Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions and in the Prime Minister's Office, V. Narayanasamy, in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha today.
