Australia currently does not sell uranium to nuclear-armed India because it has refused to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).
Mr Howard has told reporters on his arrival in New Delhi that he is willing to re-examine the policy.
"We are interested in the agreement that's been struck between the United States and India," he said.
"We do have long-standing policy of only selling uranium to countries that are part of the NPT regime, but we'll have a look at a bit more information about that and we'll further assess it.
We were expecting this to happen sooner or later, but not so fast.
