Akash can intercept the enemy plane at 20 Km altitude. I do not know about QR SAM but it may be lot less than that.
QRSAM is meant to protect against low flying targets like helicopters, UAS and to an extent CMs.
Akash is meant to protect against all of the above and much more as it is a static area defence weapon so much be able to target all airborne targets in the AOR
QRSAM has an engagement range of 25km and a ceiling of 10km and is being developed for deployment in mobile mechanized formations
Akash has an engagement range of 25km and a ceiling of 20km and is meant for static air defense of critical facilities to replace current SA-3 systems in place
