Then we must go for American options for engine alone.. May be we can contact to get the engine used in tomohawks, for time being.
I seriously doubt whether Washington will release mini turbofan engines to us.
Any info on their willingness?. Can you quote a source?. The Americans may offer the Tomahawk missiles (probably) for use against the Chinese but not the engines themselves a la carte. They would like us to be dependent on them. Not be self-sufficient.

People need to understand that R&Ding cruise missiles isn't easy, they are basically jet-planes.
I suggest looking at the initial stages of development for Tomahawk, the failure rate will shock you.

I think Nirbhay's current success to failure ratio is quite normal.

Its the systems that are barely ever tested but are deemed operational that should be doubted.

None of the domestic systems.
