Chinese CH-6 drones and A300 MLRS are enough to neutralize Indian S-400s.
Does India have a domestic project in this area?

No. Indian domestic industry is very primitive and does not have tech to even accept any ToT from Russia. So forget about building anything on our own locally.

why would China need the S-400?
Similar reason as buying small amount of Su-35, i.e. training & development. Our units under FTTC (Flight Test and Training Centre) say 172 brigade or OPFOR say 175 brigade as "blue teams" are the primary users of non-standard equipment that employs different PLA protocol. In fact I guess Pak Airforce had also "battled" against S400 during the 2019 Shaheen VIII, and recently two S400 battalions are moved to Western Theater Command in preparation for coming Shaheen X.

Yes, we do.

Please ignore the flame-baiter here who responded to you earlier.

It is called Pradyumna Missile Defense System (PMDS). The reason why S-400 was ordered was because of the immediate requirement till our trials were complete and productions begin. Long story, short, the PMDS consists of two different sub-systems called the PAD-1 and AAD-1. PAD-1 is for targeting endo-atmospheric targets, including ballistic missiles, while the AAD-1 is an exo-atmospheric advanced missile shield.

The interceptor tests were completed by mid-2021 and production has already started. In addition to the PMDS, India has a multi-layered air defense system that is a mix between domestic SAM systems like short-range Akash, mid-range Akash-NG, the India-Israel JV missile LR-SAM/Barak system, as well as outright purchased systems such as the Israeli SPYDER system. The S-400 will be a complement to this on the borders.

Furthermore, the latest layer being created is using the base platform of the indigenous Astra BVRAAM system (Mk1 already inducted, Mk2 being finalized now). This is a concept borrowed from the idea of SPYDER that uses Python-5 BVRAAMs as a tech base and modifies the missile to become air defense missiles. The Astra-based system will be a long-range air defense version, complementing a space between S-400 and the PMDS.

The problem is, much of the project is a confidential one so the blow-by-blow details are not easily available much like the AMCA stealth fighter or the long-range UCAV projects in India. S-400s were more or less a stopgap after our skirmish in Doklam (the tri-junction between Bhutan, India & China) way back in 2017. The order to get S-400 was placed in 2018 during the inter-governmental summit between India and Russia.
AKASH in the service..... AKASH NG under development, AAD AND PAD expected by 2025...

AAD/PAD (PMDS collectively) is expected to join much before that. Trials are already done by some reports and should start inductions by 2022-end/2023-start.

Details of S-400 System and its AD cover.

- Details of key components like surveillance and fire-control radars, TELs, support vehicles etc. which constitute S-400 Air Defense Missile System.
- Configuration of a typical S-400 missile regiment.
- Likely configuration of S-400 squadron in IAF service.
- Hypothetical scenario of deployment of 2 x S-400 squadrons on India's western border, and the type of air defense cover provided by them.

- Coverage provided by hypothetical deployment of 2 x S-400 Squadrons. One squadron is in the general area of Jalandhar, and other Squadron is close to Bikaner. The image shows primary (91N6E 'Big Bird') and secondary (96L6E 'Cheese Board') radar cover, and range of 40N6E(400-km), 48N6E3(250km), and 9M96E2 (120-km) range missiles.
