No source, just look at the design of this PDW and Roni and compare it. It's heavily influenced by CAA micro roni for sure.
Roni isn't a firearm, its just a carbine conversion kit for Glock pistols.

ASMI on the other hand is an automatic firearm with what seems like blowback-operated system (not sure about that bit). It's in the league of B&T MP9.

I have seen few delta or Army rangers video about set-up it's plain and simple no guccci stuff
True, its also important to disseminate sources of information as well. There's lots of ex-SOF guys on Youtube that always have great evidence-based info to share, however the vast majority of uninitiated people are drawn to Youtube equivalent of Mall Ninjas or Boogaloo Boys.

That said, its also important to be clear about what is Gucci gear and what isn't. There are unfortunately lot of people on this forum alone who seem to think anything that doesn't come with the rifle out of the box is Gucci gear.

Any thoughts on this from my perspective this deal is not good

Ak is always good assault rifle
With optics improvements
Ak is deadly and far more user friendly than any rifle out there

It's 7.62×39 makes it better option than standard 5.56 carbine

Its all weather time tested platform with opetational history with Indian army.

Ak is still standard rifle for Russia
And 6.8 is still far from deployment

You can agree however that this deal will give the IA a stable, Just Werkz "service rifle" won't it? instead of them being ill-equipped thanks to years long tug of war between IMPORT HI IMPORT HOGA lobby and Make In India by OFB/DRDO group
There is no dearth of AKs available for as low as 25-30k and with Fab defence modification and scopes much better than the one offered at 80 k+

They have been using 5.56 round for long now as 7.62 AK lacks accuracy and have high recoil .

6.5/6.8 provide accuracy range as well as power required to take enemy out.

There is no doubt about AK's reliability and 'soldier-proof'-ness,
but question(s) should be if AK is the one rifle that army wants then what 'special sauce' is provided with AK-203 that we have to import-get loicense-ToT for that one while we make Trichy, Ghaatak etc variants here at home ? What does AK-203 that Trichy or Ghaatak could not do ? if Rails is the reply then how come we could not make our own AK-203 equivalent rifle from Trichy or Ghaatak by providing railed top cover on it ?

Dunno where you got that from, but 7.62*39 is just a sorry excuse for anything other than a CQB carbine/PDW.

Of course, 5.56 would be better even in SBR/PDW configuration. 7.62x39 is a low velocity, high drag cartridge. Can't compete with 5.56mm. Whoever wrote IA's stupid ass GSQRs ought to be court martialed.

This one, as confirmed by @captscooby81. Kaptaan went to the defexpo2020 and saw this one there and also got confirmation that this is the version of AK-203 (in reality AK-103M) that we are getting IF the deal is signed et cetra et cetra.
