Abstract: Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) was established after Indias 1974 nuclear tests. Only signatories of the Nuclear Proliferation Treaty (NPT) can fulfill the criteria for NSG membership. India is not a signatory of NPT. India, however, is getting support from the US for entry into the NSG. Since Pakistan is a nuclear power and a non-NPT signatory so, it also applied for membership of the NSG along with India in 2016. Pakistan took the stance of criteria-based membership - entry either for all or none. China opposed membership of India into the group based on the NPT signatory grounds. Thus, Indias membership was vetoed. This article analyzes NSGs membership case of India and Pakistan. It further discusses the nuclear doctrines of India and Pakistan. In Indias membership case, it highlights the role of the US and Grossis proposal. In Pakistans membership case, it discusses Chinas role briefly
