Can anyone take pubic places your picture or video without your permission in India? Do they have the right to upload it on social media? Is there any value in India for the loss of dignity caused by it?

Inform facts, circumstances, places, and whether the video has on any occasion or a public place with others also in picture and how the person thinks that dignity was lost.

Park is a public place and how there is a loss of privacy and reputation in publishing a photo has to be explained in detail to Police for registering your complaint.  When activities in a car in a public place are ruled as not private, one can not get the complaint registered.

You have come to a decent forum for guidance and members express their opinion and this is your question to them who informs you that taking photographs in a public park is not an invasion of privacy, as SC has ruled what is personal information.

If you think that your privacy in a public park with a girlfriend should not be photographed and that amounts to an invasion of privacy, you are at liberty to make a simple issue more complicated to her, and free to seek such remedy under the law by contacting your local advocate and making the media and the person involved in this.

In such situation, where it is specifically the case that the picture or video has been taken with the wilful intention to intrude into your privacy, you have the option to file a suit in the civil court. Please note that such actions are still untested in our country and hence, it is impossible that there could be a definite suggestion as to the outcome.

The park is a public place and not a private place, hence it cannot be said that your privacy has been invaded by the person alleged to have taken your photograph while you were with your girlfriend.

In my opinion no case for defamation or invasion of privacy may be maintainable.

In a public place it is absolutely legal to photograph someone, and to use the photograph for any purpose as long as the persons photographed are not misrepresented or the photo is used for ulterior motive.
