No one buys from Alibaba and Aliexpress in India.
You are very mistaken.
Whole local market buys cheap stuff of Alibaba and aliexpress only.
All the heaphones being sold on Amazon, FK and other platforms comes cheaply from alibaba and aliexpress on bulk order.
A Rs. 1500 headphone/earphones can be bought on 300rs only from these sites.

I lost 350 rs on that shitty app.
I don't use the account anymore, looking to delete my account permanently but it's a difficult process.

PhonePe, BHIM, Google lay are better anyway.
Google Pay has problem with payment processing more often than PayTM and PhonePe. They are restricted to only 30% of overall load by Govt.
PhonePe works best. Most stable of the apps.
PayTM scans everything but the main app has become too heavy, always takes time to open the scanner.

Www.Banggood.com is not banned ryt now. Coz now they have arrived in India and their Indian branch is Banggood India. Just like Apple India or OnePlus India.

Aliexpress was not present in India but only in china.
Alibaba group has separate Global Site and separate china based site. However both sites are available in English and can be used to source parts from same sellers interchangeably.

You practically order any industrial level products like cnc machine etc.......and order products in bulk.
Industrial level products are cheap but not that good in long run.
We bought an Fully automatic injection Molding machine 5 yrs back which was Taiwan make. It was just a china made machine with company's Taiwanese branch marketing it in India. It works only half the time it is supposed to as other half of time is down with problems. Frequent electrical checks are needed and optimum cooling and oiling is required.

Mate are u aware of any Indian companies that make CNC machine? The most I've heard is that they assemble the thing here.

Indian Navy inducts two American Predator drones on lease, can be deployed on China border

In a sign of growing closeness between India and the United States amid conflict with China, the Indian Navy has inducted two Predator drones from an American firm on lease for carrying out surveillance in the Indian Ocean Region and which can also be deployed along the Line of Actual Control in Eastern Ladakh.

The American-origin drones have been inducted by the Navy under the emergency procurement powers granted by the Defence Ministry in view of the India-China border conflict.

"The drones arrived in India in the second week of November and were inducted into flying operations on November 21 at Indian Navy base at INS Rajali," top government sources told ANI.

The drones have already started flying operations and with an endurance capability of being in the air for over 30 hours, they are proving to be a big asset for the maritime force, they said.

An American crew from the vendor is also accompanying the equipment and would help the Navy to operate the machines, the sources said.

The drones are flying in Indian colours and would be on lease with India for one year even as the three services are preparing the case for acquiring 18 more such drones from the US, the sources said.

India and America have been working very closely during the ongoing conflict against Chinese aggression in Eastern Ladakh including help in surveillance and information sharing in all domains, the sources said.

Sources said the option of leasing weapon systems has been provisioned under the Defence Acquisition Procedure-2020 and the Defence Procurement Manual -2009 and helps in saving funds and the responsibility of maintenance also lies with the vendor, the sources said.

Under the lease agreement, the American support staff will only help in the maintenance and technical issues whereas the sortie planning and the joystick control would be with the Indian Navy personnel, the sources said.

Own thoughts- Certainly disruptive and upsets the apple cart for Eleven quite a bit. Whatever other gripe we may have with Modiji led defence forces they certainly can't be faulted for thinking out of the box- wayyy out of the box. Rubbing my hands with glee at the prospects of what other rabbits we can pull out of the American MIC hat keeping any Chinese planning of our war waging abilities in total disarray.

Woah, without any clue to anyone outside the GOI, also shows how closely we are working with the USA on these matters.

Just in: The model of the leased drones is MQ-9B SeaGuardian reconnaissance drones.

According to General Atomics, this model is capable of:
  • Anti-Surface Warfare (ASuW)
  • Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW)
  • HA/DR – Humanitarian Assistance/Disaster Relief
  • Search and Rescue
  • Law Enforcement (Drug Trafficking, Illegal Immigration, Piracy
  • OMSI – Oceanic Maritime Security Initiative)
  • Airborne Counter Mine Capability (Developmental)

Ya'll Nibbiars Can’t blame bhutan if it ends up making some deal with China on land swap or allows a base. China is a very powerful rogue bully. Bhutan stands no chance to retaliate. It’s India’s responsibility to ensure and manage Bhutan’s borders’ sanctity and diplomatic leaning.

I wonder if they can pull of such a deal behind our back. If such a thing do happen, we will have no choice but to capture the whole zompelri ridge, and probably the whole Samtse district to safeguard China from moving any further.

And that will be pretty much end of Bhutan as a country, as quickly after this, China will also probably snatch all border areas like the Haa district adjacent to Yadong.
