Gravitational Wave(GW) detector sites around the world. The Indian Initiative in Gravitational-wave Observations(INDIGO) will be fully functional by 2024. With most equipment coming from the US, INDIGO will be similar to the LIGO Hanford Observatory.

The IndIGO Consortium has spearheaded the proposal for the LIGO-India gravitational-wave observatory, in association with the LIGO laboratory in US. In addition to the LIGO-India project, the other activities of IndIGO involve facilitating international collaborations in gravitational-wave physics and astronomy, initiating a strong experimental gravitational-wave research program in India, etc. The observatory will be operated jointly by IndIGO and LIGO and would form a single network along with the LIGO detectors in U.S. and Virgo in Italy. The design of the detector will be identical to that of the Advanced LIGO detectors in the US.

The three lead institutions in the IndIGO consortium. IndIGO has currently over 70 member scientists. Bala Iyer of the Raman Resarch Institute is the Chairperson and Tarun Souradeep of the Inter Resarch University for the Astro Physics and the Institute of the Plasma Resarch. The international advisory committee is chaired by theoretical physicist and has members from several international as well as Indian research institutions.

Mukam Post Aunadh Nagnath, Zilla Hingoli is where the INDIGO is coming. A spare or a older relocation of one of the Hanford detectors (L2) will be done still it will cost us in the excess of 2,000 Crores Rupees for the facilities.

Any info on the funding?(like is it a partnership program or goi funded etc)

And Where Is it gonna be located?
Ya'll nigga see the above post I already answered your question in advance.

The major purpose of IndIGO is to set up the LIGO-India detector, which would help enhance the network of gravitational wave detectors worldwide. The network includes the two LIGO detectors in the US, the Virgo and GEO800 detectors in Europe, and the KAGARA detector in Japan. By simultaneous detection of the same event on these multiple detectors, a precise location in the sky can be pinpointed for the source of the detected waves. For example, the first detected gravitational waves by LIGO could only pinpoint the location of the black hole merger source to a broad area of the southern hemisphere sky. Using triangulation, this location information could be improved if the signal was detected on more than two detectors. Another important goal of IndIGO is to train scientists for successfully operating the LIGO-India detector, when commissioned. Previous studies have shown that a detector operational in India would improve source localization significantly, by an order of magnitude or more, depending on the region of the sky.

Copy Paste. :)
