Default Indian arrows (Mughal ?)

Something a bit different ... I was able to pick up these four arrows out of interest quite cheaply a little while ago. Can anyone give me more information about them ? The quality of workmanship is quite high, differing forms of steel heads, reed shafts with ivory/bone nocks. Seems like remains of green paint ? in the area around the fletching. I would like to know the approximate date range and likely area of origin and any other pertinent information.

Anyway, thanks in advance.

Many thanks for the link, Ken. Mughal, say early 19th century for my arrows seems about right.
