    The United States has apparently made an offer to jointly develop next generation of weapon systems for use by the Indian military.
    This includes complete transfer of technology for specified weapons.

    Such a deal is expected in the next visit of the Indian prime minister and delegates to the United States.

    After a decade long wait i believe the US have understood that India is not the " YES SIR " kind.
    Joint development with TOT does safeguard us against possible sanctions and worst case scenario.
    Killing two birds with a single stone the US would also make greater inroads into the Indian defence market denying age old partners in Russia and Europe.

    India has played the game well , finally the non alignment idea has given us best of both worlds.
    Only worry is we don't get coaxed into geopolitical blunders on the world stage on American insistence/pressure.

    India's to license produce U.S. weapons,

    According to U.S. military sources, the Indian and U.S. leaders also set up military cooperation projects, such as the use of U.S. technology by India to build an aircraft carrier as well as India's licensed production of U.S. weapons, although the two countries refrained from announcing these agreements.
