Kumar Krishan Agarwal Advocate (Lawyer)     10 December 2014

Recording court proceedings thru video camera

Dear Friends!


Sometimes on any argument or any simple request we cannot feel safe & secure that what happens from which side and what the sitting judge or any public servant or any police officer may give what response or order or what behavior he returned to us.


Q1. Is video recording inside in open court of law can be recorded by the advocates or the public for better hearing aspects in future and also for creating right evidence that this thing happens in actual and may be used in higher appellate court for justification.?


Q2 Suppose a public servant esp higher police officers not meet to the victims and if meet victims not give good relief to them and pass foul language or dirty behavior by the other buttering officers with him for his surrounded security so all this is a crime in Indian laws to do string operation of police officers when we go to meet them as not know which way they swing and what they do with police powers provided by State?


Q3. Is Recording thru video Camera crime in all Courts or in official meeting to public servant in any open place or in their offices or on going roads?


Q4. Is India a complete sovereign state in full aspects or have Rules of British regime time still applied or Rules of Taliban and Afghanistan are applied on the people of India if you raise your pain voices in India on any matter of law and fact in public or complaint to any authority.?

I am also searching for it, Why cant public take videos in public places? If an arrest happening in public place or an police doing an illegal checking, why we have to get permission prior to take video of it?

They are public servants and should be answerable to the actions in public, but only if it video taped it will be proper.

All public places can be photographed / videotaped unless explicitly prohibited. Doing the same to persons in such public places however is a violation of their privacy.


if the person concerned is acting in his public capacity as a public officer  however, such recordings are permissible except for the Courts who have, in their benevolent wisdom, kept themselves away from public scrutiny so far. So you can have parliamentarians fighting and policemen beating up people on TV ( as is shown often by the media ) but not proceedings in the court.


this is not the case in USA  etc where court proceedings are fully recorded and even, sometimes, repeated over TV.

In view of your fiend , cases may be processed in the court of law under C.C. T. V Camera. Delivery of justice is integral part of Good Governamce.
