    I'm sure NTRO will use UCAV and then it'll be just like CIA

    I am not sure on that aspect as the mandate has not been given to revive the kill program as of yet.

    I said revive as rumours of such programs being run earlier by India persist.

    On hold. Shelved. Didn’t make sense as ARC is needed for other tasks not necessarily requiring NTRO or even RAW cadre to know.

    Now that is interesting, first steps in creating a fully fledged airwing for NRTO (till now I don't think they have had any manned air assests).

    NTRO is a technical intel agency, they don't have the remit to conduct "kinetic" operations, that would be R&AW, the NTRO is like the US's NSA.

    I don't really see the need to have armed UAVs with the intel agencies in India though, the US's expample is very specific and unable to be replicated in the Indian context.


    I suppose you mean ARC's logistics/support operations? But ARC's technical/intel fleet should/could still be transfered to NRTO. This being India though I fully expect a duplication of services and NRTO and ARC will operate similar fleets of a/c in the long term.

    Nah ... the Military Intelligence was great at that. Congress got wind of it and ensured that the Army was put on back foot as their scams and theft did not go unnoticed by Military Intelligence.

    The problem with the system is that MI can not do much as it's charter (as indeed the armed forces' is) is to remain externally focussed and to stay out of internal affairs. The perfect example was the cloud over Mulayam Singh Yadav's SP getting funds via Hawala Route in 90s and his being appointed the RM. Any other country, there would have been a commission established and the RM would have been either sacked or at least relieved for conflict of interest. But not in India. Although rumour has it that the MI had indeed got enough circumstantial (and other wise) proof.
