The $\chem{{}^{115,117,119,121}In}$ nuclei have been produced as fission fragments in three reactions induced by heavy ions: $\chem{{}^{12}C}$ + $\chem{{}^{238}U}$ at 90 MeV bombarding energy, $\chem{{}^{18}O}$ + $\chem{{}^{208}Pb}$ reaction at 85 MeV, and $\chem{{}^{31}P}$ + $\chem{{}^{176}Yb}$ at 152 MeV. Their level schemes have been built from gamma-rays detected using the EUROBALL III and IV arrays. High-spin states of $\chem{{}^{117,119,121}In}$ nuclei have been identified for the first time. Moreover, isomeric states lying around 2.5 MeV have been established in $\chem{{}^{119,121}In}$ from the delayed coincidences between the fission fragment detector SAPhIR and the gamma array. Most of the observed states can be described by coupling a proton g9/2 hole to a $\chem{Sn}$ core, while the intruder band based on an orbital from the $\pi[g_{7/2}/d_{5/2}]$ sub-shells behaves as the ground-state band of neighbouring Cd isotopes.
