This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 81%. (I'm a bot)

> India and Italy are expected to put nearly a decade of tensions over the arrest of Italian marines and other issues firmly behind them with discussions about a bilateral defence cooperation that is likely to be announced during Italian Prime Minister Georgia Meloni's visit to India.

> "A general agreement on bilateral cooperation in the defence sector ," a diplomatic source confirmed to The Hindu, adding that if talks do not conclude during Ms. Meloni's visit in March, the agreement will be ready for signing during her next visit to India in September for the G-20 summit.

> Last week, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh held talks with Italian State Secretary for Defence Matteo Perego Di Cremnago in Bengaluru on the sidelines of the Aero India show, the first such visit in several years.

Not mutual defence pact. India still hasn’t made any, and wouldn’t start with Italy. This’ll just be something like more military exercises together, or maybe working together on development of military equipment.

Defence agreement = joint weapons development, military procurement, that kind of stuff.

It's not a military alliance (and it's not like a military alliance between Italy and India would make sense when they have completely different strategic interests anyway)
