Talks are underway to sort out certain issues relating to the cost, weapons package and technology sharing to procure around 20-30 MQ-9B drones for the three Indian Armed Forces.

Two Indian Navy MQ-9B drones under lease has recently completed 10,000 flying hours, within a very short timespan which impressed the Indian Navy officials and reduced the burden of Boeing P-8I Maritime Patrol Aircraft.
