No needto take such permission unkless it creates noise pollution. I'm reproducing the head notes of Madras High Court Decison in this regard below. read on:
on needed for prayers at houses: Bench
Frivolous complaints should not be entertained: judge
practising a particular religion, be it Hinduism, Christianity or Islam, cannot be prevented from assembling in a dwelling place for conducting prayers and there is no necessity for them to obtain prior permission from any authority, the Madras High Court Bench here has held.
Justice S. Manikumar passed the ruling while disposing of a writ petition filed by a Pentecost Christian of Colachel in Kanyakumari district to forbear the police and the district administration from initiating any action aimed at preventing him from conducting prayer meetings in his house. The judge, however, clarified that if such prayers led to public nuisance such as noise pollution, then it would always be open to the authorities to take necessary action under the provisions of the relevant statutes such as the Noise Pollution (Regulation and Control) Rules, 2000.
Further, such action could be taken only after the authorities, on the basis of concrete evidence, arrive at a subjective satisfaction that there had been an infringement of the right of other residents around the dwelling place and therefore they have to step in to maintain public order.
