We report, over an extended energy range, recommended angle-integrated cross sections for elastic scattering, discrete inelastic scattering processes, and the total ionization cross section for electron scattering from atomic indium. In addition, from those angle-integrated cross sections, a grand total cross section is subsequently derived. To construct those recommended cross-section databases, results from original B-spline R-matrix, relativistic convergent close-coupling, and relativistic optical-potential computations are also presented here. Electron transport coefficients are subsequently calculated, using our recommended database, for reduced electric fields ranging from 0.01 Td to 10 000 Td using a multiterm solution of Boltzmann's equation. To facilitate those simulations, a recommended elastic momentum transfer cross-section set is also constructed and presented here.
