India and the United States have already signed three important core agreements: the General Security of Military Information Agreement (GSOMIA) in 2002, the Logistics Memorandum of Understanding (LEMOA) in 2016 and the Communication Compatibility and Security Agreement (COMCASA) in 2018. These included areas of military security and information, compatibility, security, logistical exchange and communication. The Basic Exchange and Cooperation Agreement (BECA) for Space Cooperation is essentially a proposed communication agreement between the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency of the US Department of Defense and the Ministry of Defense of the Government of India. The United States looks forward to India signing the Basic Exchange and Cooperation Agreement for Geo-Spatial Cooperation (BECA) at the upcoming India-US 2+2 Ministerial Dialogue, which is expected to take place in October 2020.

In the case of India, the four core agreements have dealt with country-specific changes. The BECA agreement has been under negotiation between India and the US for more than a decade, with the previous UPA government concerned about its impact on India`s national security, given that the bilateral agreement also provides for India to share similar data with the US. The agreement is one of the few fundamental agreements that the United States concludes with its close partners. • These agreements cover areas such as security and military information, compatibility, and the exchange and communication of security and logistics.
BECA aims to improve cooperation between India and the UNITED States within the country. India and the United States have signed the Basic Exchange and Cooperation Agreement (BECA), signed jointly with the two previously signed agreements, LEMOA and COMCASA. BECA is the latest of four basic defense agreements between the two countries, which allow for a much higher level of military cooperation in the fields of defense technology, interoperability and production.
