The plane, on a flight from Oman to Australia, developed problems and its "May Day call" was picked up by Air India flight 902, which, in turn, alerted the naval authorities in Goa.
Naval sources said arrangements were made for an emergency landing and a Dornier aircraft of the Navy took off to assist the incapacitated aircraft to land.
The plane is registered in Sierra Leone and has a six-member crew comprising one Australian and five British nationals.
The crew is reported to be safe at the Goa Naval Base, the sources said.
