Default Possibly Indian Republic or Pakistan?

Does anyone know what this is please? My own thoughts are possibly either Indian Republic or Pakistan. It is a printed badge which looks reasonably old.
Any suggestions would be most welcome.

21st Indian Corps WW2.
Unable to confirm originality.

Whilst it does look similar to the 21st Indian Corps sign, I have never seen one that looked quite like this.

Thanks gentlemen. Can anyone show a scan of the Indian 21st Corps formation sign for comparison, please?

Thanks for that. However, I have just found my copy of B.L.Morris's book of line drawings of Formation Signs, in which he shows some Indian Army ones as well as British Army. His line drawing of EasternCommand (India) is very close to the patch I have, so I assume it is this rather than 21st Indian Corps.
