Video taping the government employee


Sir / Madam

I would like to know whether it is legal to video tape the Government Employee on duty, without his/her consent, by a private person.  Can we lodge a complaint against a person for video taping the Government Employee on duty, with out any permission.

Regards,

 

Vikram Kumar Saathiri

Hi,

If you are caught in trap doing illegal things in that case you cannot raise any complaint for video tapping against the person.

Thank you for the reply Sir. I agree with you, but  these days few people are barging into the offices and government establishments and making video's of the employee's and are making false allegations, just to draw some attention.  One person tried to provoke the  public in general and tried to defame the employees by making false propoganda and circulated the video on whatsapp. He created lot of nuisance at the Government establishment.  The department has conducted an enquiry on the allegations in presence of the person who has video taped.  The person has admitted that he has made the video, as there was a miscommunication. There was no wrong from the department side.  How to handle such persons.

Thanks again,

Vikram Kumar Saathiri

And if such data (photo, video) is on a private page on Instagram? I can use this as an argument in court if I myself used instagram viewer without account. Will this be considered an invasion of privacy? I just know that many people use this trick. But if a person has posted something on his page, then he must already recognize it as public material, right?
