The legality of spy camera glasses in India depends on the purpose for which they are being used. If they are being used for security purposes, such as monitoring your home or business, then they are legal. However, if they are being used to record someone without their consent, then they are illegal.

The Indian Penal Code (IPC) and the Information Technology Act (IT Act) both have provisions that make it illegal to use hidden cameras to record someone without their consent. The IPC Section 430 makes it an offence to "secretly peep, pry into or overhear, the private conversation of others," and the IT Act Section 66E makes it an offence to "intercept, decrypt, or disclose data that is transmitted in a computer network."

There are a few exceptions to these laws. For example, it is legal to use a hidden camera to record someone if you have their consent, or if you are doing so in a public place where there is no reasonable expectation of privacy.

So, if you are considering using spy camera glasses in India, it is important to be aware of the legal implications. If you are not sure whether your use of the glasses would be legal, it is best to consult with an attorney.

Here are some additional things to keep in mind about the legality of spy camera glasses in India:

  • Law enforcement authorities may seize your spy camera glasses if they believe that you are using them illegally.
  • You could be charged with a criminal offence, such as invasion of privacy or voyeurism.
  • You could be sued by the person you recorded without their consent.

Therefore, it is important to use spy camera glasses responsibly and only in situations where they are legal.
