Should? Yes. Must? Technically no. Technically the fire control needs to come for a sum total of the burn distance- a part may come from fighter and remaining from the missile's seeker.the range of radar should outmatch the bvr missile range to effectively guide it to its target.
However it's a pretty naive assumption that IAF will go ahead and select a radar with capabilities less than the one it already has planned to make Operational in other units of the same aircraft. Also, that the development agency that has developed an AWACS platform will offer such radar after 3 years of testing
