The fact that they carried Sig MPX and HK MP5 in equal numbers in the Republic Day parade, IMO shows NSG has chosen SIG MPX as it’s 9mm sub machine gun to replace/augment the MP5.Rifle, ballistic helmet, plate carrier, provisions?
As it is if those Garuds jumped as they are once they landed and got rid of the para gear they'd be standing in just their fatigues, they are meant to be combatants not professional sky divers.
NSG buy small quantities of lots of weapons to give their troops familiarisation with as many as possible, but they aren't issued. The standard issue is still SIG-5XX and MP5/X

The MPXs seem to ave been bought as a hedge again HK embargoing India
NSG is still wedded to their SMG preference, they'll need to go through a doctrine change for SBRs to be inducted/standard issue
Ig they’ll wait to see what IA chooses for its carbine requirements, NSG may take a decision what to replace their SIG 500 family of weapons with. I have a feeling they will choose SIG SAUER weapons like the MCX and 716 for their respective requirements. Previously it is seen with Indian sec agencies like NSG and SPG buy an entire family of weapons within a single company ex. NSG initially purchased a large number of HK products(MP5, PSG-1 sniper) and SPG until this day has FN HERSTAL fever.
