IIRC In the Nepal Earthquake rescue mission, USA was asked to remove V 22 from the rescue, because it was found that the wash of the propellers had damaged many hutments while dropping relief materials.India
In 2015 the Indian Aviation Research Centre (ARC) became interested in acquiring four V-22 Ospreys for personnel evacuation in hostile conditions, logistic supplies, and deployment of the Special Frontier Force (SFF) in border areas. India had seen the Osprey perform in relief operations of the April 2015 Nepal earthquake. Elements of the Indian Navy have also looked at the V-22 rather than the E-2D for Airborne early warning and control to replace the short-range Kamov Ka-31. India is interested in purchasing six attack version V-22s for rapid troop insertion in border areas.
