Wrong information in InfoBox
The largest yield test of India was Shatki-I, not Shakti-II. Also, a source for the 200 kiloton claim has not been provided. I provide it here.
The Shakti-I thermonuclear test, notwithstanding all the disputes about its yield, was a 200 kiloton device scaled down to 45 kt to avoid civilian damage and radioactivity leaks. The latter since India couldn’t dig a new, stronger shaft due to secrecy concerns; old shafts from 1980s were used.
