Caught Flying a Drone in India… WHAT HAPPENED NEXT 👮‍♂️

Caught Flying a Drone in India… WHAT HAPPENED NEXT 👮‍♂️

I got caught and taken away by the Indian Police for flying my drone in a restricted area in India – The Andaman & Nicobar Islands. Find out what happened at the Police station and the drone laws for foreigners who want to fly a drone in India.

The rules for flying a drone in India are straightforward. If you’re an Indian, you need to download the Government’s Digital Sky Platform and apply for permission each time through the app if your drone is over 250 grams in weight (a DJI Spark is 305 grams). Visit the Digital Sky Portal at https://digitalsky.dgca.gov.in/.

If you’re a foreigner the drone laws are simple too, you can’t fly your drone in India! There’s no easy way for foreigners to fly here yet. So you need to get an Indian person to get the permissions for you and operate the drone. Or risk being caught by the Indian Police. In remote parts, I don’t think you’ll have an issue flying, but in big cities or tourist spots, the Police are watching for drones.

I was caught flying my DJI Spark drone on Bharatpur Beach on Neil Island (now Shaheed Dweep) in the Andaman & Nicobar Island Union Territory of India.

    India: Foreigners can’t operate drones in India.
    New Zealand: Indians can’t just come to New Zealand .

  2. Arpan Jana on July 22, 2021 at 8:49 pm

  3. Ivan M on July 22, 2021 at 8:50 pm

    Check before you do something! Always follow law of the Lands, enjoy your time…

  4. Master_jelly _lol on July 22, 2021 at 8:52 pm

  5. Pieter deli ho on July 22, 2021 at 8:53 pm

  6. Mary Karle on July 22, 2021 at 8:53 pm

    Karl, you’re so dam cute when you get rattled! Love from the USA!

  7. Sudheesh Gopalakrishnan on July 22, 2021 at 8:54 pm

    What cam did you use for shooting?

  8. atta sobeh on July 22, 2021 at 8:58 pm

    I always give Karl’s videos a thumbs up

  9. Mrinal Sarkar on July 22, 2021 at 9:00 pm

    karl, they didnt put you in cellular jail for this serious crime?
    😉
    btw do cellphone signals/internet works well in andamans? wondering if you get caught can you call friends for help or not?
    ok im indian born usa living desi…and here is my simple advice…now that you are an indian jamai (son in law) just get an indian ID (drivers license, oci, aadhar, pan card etc)…and then next time youg get in a soup with cops or the ticket vendor at national monuments ask for foreigner price ticket, flash your card and say some hindi to these guys and see their faces turn pale…check out jamie altar’s videos (actor tom altars son) who carries an indian passport and speaks flawless hindi…

  10. N J on July 22, 2021 at 9:00 pm

    man you still dont understand you should read the rules it came in act in 2019 there are govt building in that small area and it is easy patrol drones in that small island and it does nt matter which catagory drone you have one seeing can only know it by bringing it down

  11. papa bolte on July 22, 2021 at 9:01 pm

    Stupid asshole there are some rules for drone first learn dat u son of a bitch

  12. Ritik on July 22, 2021 at 9:02 pm

    Foreigners are currently not allowed to fly drones in India. For commercial purposes, they need to lease the drone to an Indian entity who in-turn will obtain Unique Identification Number (UIN) and UAOP from DGCA.

  13. 1diode on July 22, 2021 at 9:05 pm

    Everyone knows its illegal to just fly in India. They have no permission no fly. Use their app to get approval. No sympathy

  14. Ronit Sarkar on July 22, 2021 at 9:06 pm

    Flying drone in India is not that easy because of privacy issue. I hope they lower the restrictions…

  15. Charles S on July 22, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    A SO-CALLED FREE AND DEMOCRATIC COUNTRY CAN NOT ALLOW A DRONE FLYING, I KNOW IT IS CHINA’S FAULT, RIGHT? I GUESS INDIA GOV IS Afraid of visitors record the dirty area out the country.

  16. Sujan Rimal on July 22, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    Come to nepal someday bro🙂🙂🙂

  17. The S K WORLD on July 22, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    Hey Karl, I flew a DJI PHANTAOM 4 pro +. But no one told me anything also I didn’t have a permission also. I flew it over an hour in Neil, Havelock and Port Blair also no one took notice of me. Probably they got disheartened because at first they thought you to be PewdiePie but later realised thta you were PewdiePie on crack. lol.

  18. Mary Tony on July 22, 2021 at 9:09 pm

    Hey Karl you need a license for drone

    Love from Pune

  19. immortal e on July 22, 2021 at 9:10 pm

    I always hated India

  20. Delton Baker on July 22, 2021 at 9:10 pm

    Must be a labor union thing

  21. Pieter deli ho on July 22, 2021 at 9:11 pm

    Hey you should tell them that you could fly there, cause if you have a dji spark, the dji go 4 App could tell you where can’t you fly. So if you fly there and get no warning from the app. Then you suppose to be fine. They are giving wrong information to you😠
    Btw nice content 👌
    Keep flying 😁

  22. Push Your Pawns on July 22, 2021 at 9:12 pm

    cought for fying drone and in between of telling the story just randomly puts the drone shots.
    Classic Karl rock

  23. Soma Sarkar on July 22, 2021 at 9:12 pm

    This is the dark side of India:

  24. Aniket Kalbhor on July 22, 2021 at 9:13 pm

    I visited Andaman and hv the same t shirt 0:45
    Planning for lakshwadeep

  25. Tahir Bhatti on July 22, 2021 at 9:17 pm

    This is a mentality you will never understand even if you live 20 years in India

  26. uday jordan on July 22, 2021 at 9:19 pm

    you should say them that i am going to call the immigration office and then you would see their bustards face

  27. ace regal on July 22, 2021 at 9:23 pm

    That police man should have some respect and manner to talk to a person who doesn’t speak Hindi…. policeman like them make the people uncomfortable to Visit India 🇮🇳…. from other countries…

  28. BKViDH on July 22, 2021 at 9:23 pm

    Fuck the government man they ruined my dream.

  29. Sourabh Sinha on July 22, 2021 at 9:24 pm

    You are being caught for correct reason, you need to register first. I have been following your videos, why don’t you show the pros & con’s of your country. You are following the footprint of your typical western media. Get a life & leave us!

  30. Speedrunner on July 22, 2021 at 9:24 pm

    If someone catched my drobe i would self destruct the drone

  31. Life Made Easy on July 22, 2021 at 9:25 pm

    Still, you must admit that Indian police is better than many compared to other countries.

  32. Patrick Moniz on July 22, 2021 at 9:26 pm

    Hey karl im an indian now living in nz ..im coming back to india now …i have a mavic pro ..what is the app i need to use to legaly fly in india

  33. Raman Malkania on July 22, 2021 at 9:27 pm

    Not sure if I have to believe karl’s story

  34. Tahir Bhatti on July 22, 2021 at 9:30 pm

    From your talk and behavier i can tell that if something dangerous happens you will run and leave your friends and family behind to save yourown as first

  35. M on July 22, 2021 at 9:33 pm

    7:09 lol, cheeky. Well done.

  36. आपन बघेली on July 22, 2021 at 9:36 pm

    You get Nothing by argument. it is rules by indian government and violation of rules is a big deal.

  37. Pieter deli ho on July 22, 2021 at 9:36 pm

    What drone did you fly?

  38. Saurabh Vartak on July 22, 2021 at 9:36 pm

    Lol that China flag in between 😂😂😂😂😂

  39. Samsung Ali on July 22, 2021 at 9:36 pm

    You should have been honest. If you have nothing to be scared about. I think drones should be banned. Google maps is a lame example as its from miles up

  40. Samsung Ali on July 22, 2021 at 9:37 pm

    Normally u report people this time it was you who got reported

  41. Pieter deli ho on July 22, 2021 at 9:38 pm

    What drone did you fly?

  42. Al96 on July 22, 2021 at 9:39 pm

  43. Karl Rock on July 22, 2021 at 9:41 pm

    Dosto, lots of miss information in the comments saying you can’t fly drones in India. Here are the facts… The rules for flying a drone in India are straightforward.

  44. nikhil kumar on July 22, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    Neil island has a naval station. That’s why you got reported

  45. Daniel Broomhall on July 22, 2021 at 9:43 pm

    India is a shit country.

  46. Xavier on July 22, 2021 at 9:43 pm

    U should have amazed them with ur hindi..they would have been impressed!!

  47. Lady Scarface on July 22, 2021 at 9:44 pm

    Imagine a country literally having racist laws🤣

  48. Evolve always on July 22, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    It isn’t small issue, if it is against law means it is against law period doesn’t matter whether you are from Pluto . Terrorist can fly drone to recce the area before major attack. If someone reported you then he has done good job

  49. mounic sai ram on July 22, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    You look like a spy

  50. Abhinav on July 22, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    Bro I saw your Delhi metro video yesterday and this one today. In the metro video you said moral policing is unnecessary unless it’s a major crime and in this one you said the exact opposite. Love your videos but just pointing out the inconsistency.
    P.S. In my opinion the metro guy was rude and that’s what the problem was, not the fact that he informing you of the rule. Anyway love to you and your family.
