Is it legal to make video recordings of a police officer on duty in India?


The laws around recording police officers on duty can vary depending on the country and jurisdiction. In India, the legality of recording police officers on duty is a subject of some debate. The Indian Constitution does not explicitly prohibit recording police officers on duty, but there have been cases where individuals recording police activity have faced legal action.

It's important to note, however, that the right to take photographs and video of things that are plainly visible in public spaces is protected by the Indian Constitution. As such, if you are recording police officers performing official duties in public spaces you are likely within your rights to do so.

That being said, it's always a good idea to exercise caution and common sense when recording police activity. Make sure you're not interfering with police business, don't obstruct their work, and avoid breaking any other laws while recording. Additionally, it's a good idea to familiarize yourself with local laws and regulations regarding recording in public places.
