Aryan groups differ from Iranian in a few ways:


1. Aryan groups have more IVC ancestry than Iranian groups.

2. Iranian groups have significantly more BMAC (Bustan) ancestry than Aryan groups.

3. Iranian groups have significantly more Levant ancestry than Aryan groups who have none. (But we can dismiss this as a source of Iranian languages for obvious reasons).

4. Similar minor levels of Sintashta ancestry in all these groups. (avg 15%).

The complete absence of BMAC ancestry in modern Aryan groups, but a ~35% presence in Iranian groups points to BMAC ancestry as a possible origin for the Iranian language family.
