    Looks like you didn't read very thoroughly. India has been using western (British) carriers and doctrine for a while.
    In fact they used all that at war, forcing a Naval blockade on East Pakistan in 1971 and launching Hawker Sea Hawks that carried out airstrikes.

    It's nothing like the co-developing mega carriers we're talking about here. It's one thing to buy a used vessel, it's another thing to co-develop one when the U.S. refuses to this day to even allow your beloved Javelins to be produced in India, but you think they'll allow their Mega carriers to be developed their instead  lol1 ..... lol1 Sorry buddy, you still need to brush up on your U.S.-Indian relations history books.

    Wasnt there information from Indian sources that they signed agreement of understanding with certain US company on co-developing EMALS for their carriers?

    The Indian aircraft carrier Viraat

    On the evening of March 6, 2017, in Mumbai, on the territory of the naval shipyard (Mumbai Naval Dockyard), an official ceremony was held for the withdrawal of the aircraft carrier R 22 Viraat from the Indian Navy, the former British Hermes, which was under the Indian flag since 1987 and for a long time was the flagship of the Indian fleet. At sunset on March 6, 2017, the Indian flag was finally descended on Viraat in order to never be raised again. Viraat was the oldest aircraft carrier in the ranks in the world, and set a historic record for the duration of service for aircraft carriers (over 57 years).
