UAE visa requirements depend on your nationality, not where you are resident (with the exception of expat residents in other GCC countries). So, as an Indian national, you will need to pre-arrange a visa for the UAE. Generally the easiest way is to get one through the airline you are traveling with, or the hotel you are staying at, or through a UAE based travel agent. Not all airlines, hotels, or travel agents will sponsor you.

First ask the airline you are traveling with about a tourist or transit visa for the UAE.

However if by stopover you mean you are not going to exit the airport but remain in transit, then you don't need a visa. Three days is a long time to sit in the airport transit area though.
