Not sure if they can be re chambered from existing firearms but Arsenal Bulgaria has a 7.62x51 version of the PKM. However Poland struggled with rechambering the PKM. AFAIK Dragunov hasn’t been re chambered the same way.
Converting belt machine gun is difficult due to linked v/s unlinked cases and related mechanism to handle those.

But dmr is straight forward for example norinco ndm-86 / Tigr in 7.62x51mm NATO.

Man their G3 replacement program is as shitty as ours. I seen somewhere that they were seriously considering Cz 807 bren as its replacement. Let me try to dig that.

Guys who thinks Ak203 is over priced should check the price of Insas and Ghataks offered for police forces😄. Its over 70K. 😬😬. Dont get the logic of one govt instutute ripping another one with such high prices.

Check the cost of civilian handguns which are just copies of Webley and Colt Model 1903 Pocket Hammerless, designs which are over a 100 years old.

Not sure i think i read it somewhere that they may go towards ;indigeneous; PK-18 rifle that essentially is AR-10 of their own,

let them have it we already have got enough Sig716i at our side to balance it well,
and even if they get turkroach MPT-76 (essentially upscaled HK416 in 7.62 NATO), we still have analogous weapon with 716i now so ok whatever...

the thing i am really annoyed (let's say jealous, honestly) is that porkies have got MP5 manufacturing etc all there and even their lowest of low pomlice walla uses MP5 SMG or semi-auto only variant whatever...while our side is still struggling like mad to replace dem Sterling "9mm Carbines" huh 😒 :facepalm2:

anyway both turkroaches and porkies have similar cases i mean both are replacing their 7.62 NATO service rifle G-3 with AR-10 derivatives, moreover to that both were given loicense + ToT by Heckler and Koch for producing roller delayed blowback pattern firearms 😒 with porkies being exception that they didn't receive package for HK41x series, but with turkroach help they might very well end up getting it anyway so...yeah.

Brother, where are you getting those options, mine literally has only the insert image and insert link and both ask for a url. I don't have the attach files options at all. Is it because I am new member?
i'm not sure about new user policy like if image attachments are disabled for new users etc until some posts 'maturity', but just in case you could still do it,

alternatively you could try uploading pics in imgur.com or postimage.org like websites and share links of uploaded images here.

Well that is an AK built on romanian PSL kit, even feeds from PSL 7.62x54mmR pattern magazine, exactly this one,
1635627039691.png

you would be having hard luck to sell that sort of rifle to Indian Army like c'mon...

as for those AR-ish rifles with blue, orange zipties on buttstocks hhmm...
are you really manufacturer of those or just a civilian who build it from separate parts etc i mean that kit is exactly this one, from one Bear Creek Arsenal of North Carolina,
1635627660343.png

and building a rifle using such kits, passing it to Indian Army etc...tough luck again mate, even if product is good our bureaucrasy here would chew it and throw out like beetelnut they consume every minute

Still try your best, what else can i say, those SIG ones were able to sell essentially a vanilla AR-10 with full auto on it that they themselves market there as a ;hunting rifle; to Indian Army then who knows these ones shown here could also score some orders or whatever...
