Could be an Eupeodes, but these Syrphini are nearly impossible to get to
species or often even genus just from one photograph... and it would also
help if you would have included a locality, I guess they are from India.
And this is one of the least known places for Syrphids, partially because
it is nearly impossible to collect in India or to get any types or material
from there. Kumar Ghorpade (kumarsinh.g at gmail.com) knows a lot about
Oriental Syrphids and is your best guess in getting this material
Best wishes,
