Buying Predator Drones From The US Could Cost India Heavily

One of the highlights of Prime Minister Modi's latest US trip was the admission of India in the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR). Apart from being a stepping stone to NSG membership, it is important because it opens doors for various defence deals involving missile and drone technology. What is not really being highlighted though, is the fact that the US is planning to sell predator drones to India, as an immediate consequence of this deal. This could have huge consequences for India.
