NPT = Non-Proliferation Treaty. It has nothing to do with carrying out tests. It is to ensure that you don't spread the tech to other nations,
especially rogue countries. I think you are confusing with CTBT (Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty). India has never shared this tech with any other
non-nuclear nation, so yeah, their record is still clean.
Pakistan did the same thing.
And it would be highly inaccurate to compare India with Pakistan, when it is clear knowledge their infamous scientist Dr. A. Q. Khan proliferated
technology to Iran, Libya and even NK.
Also, for the record, India is NOT a signatory to either of the treaties (NPT or CTBT). So again, they are not in violation of either.
