Caught Flying a Drone in India… WHAT HAPPENED NEXT ๐Ÿ‘ฎโ€โ™‚๏ธ

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.

    Governments hate new consumer technology. They tried to do stuff like this when cell phones/smart phones first came about, but then theyโ€™re too ubiquitous to be excessively regulated. Unfortunately drones are niche enough that a ton of countries are making them impossible to use.

    Indiaโ€™s laws (so far as I have read) do not allow foreigners to fly drones at all.

  6. BlueBerry Pi on September 14, 2020 at 11:27 am

    For a second I thought this guy is pewdiepie..by looking at the thumbnail

  7. Pieter deli ho on September 14, 2020 at 11:28 am

    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 you๐Ÿ˜ 
    Btw nice content ๐Ÿ‘Œ
    Keep flying ๐Ÿ˜

  20. Alok Yadav on September 14, 2020 at 11:40 am

    Dude if you think its small issue just research before visiting a country, in india you can not fly drone and make videography without permission as in past Mumbai attack was planed with videography of public places, local people did right thing to called cops and I’m Happ y to see local guys were alert and called cops. For you this is a bitter lesson but I hope next time you will definitely take precautions

  21. Deepankar G on September 14, 2020 at 11:40 am

    It is not allowed for foreigners to fly drones in india

  22. Karl Rock on September 14, 2020 at 11:43 am

    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. 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).

  23. Evolution : Machine to Man on September 14, 2020 at 11:44 am

    Yeah, misdemeanor for loitering in the streets of USA is completely fine for you.

  24. SR TALKS on September 14, 2020 at 11:44 am

    It’s a security issue man, wen u HV a nighbour country like PAKISTAN

  25. Tanaya salunke on September 14, 2020 at 11:45 am

    After 26/11 attacks gov is taking more care on coastal areas.. That is why you need to take permission..

  26. Pravesh Kumar on September 14, 2020 at 11:47 am

    In India past Time India n gov find some foreign agents of another country
    Who want to try steal our secret gov information .that’s why gov taking action strictly

  27. rajeeb paul on September 14, 2020 at 11:48 am

    Indian police are really strict. Just a bunch of money suckers

  28. thegreatujo on September 14, 2020 at 11:48 am

    why would you compare your right to fly a drone in an area because the military or the government have drones in that area ? I just didn’t get that part. It’s just like saying that because the gov’t or military have the right to fly drones over the Pentagon , you should also. Would you make the same assumption ?

  29. Chief Poncho on September 14, 2020 at 11:48 am

    1:20 You have learned my boy!

  30. Shanoo Revankar on September 14, 2020 at 11:50 am

    @Karl..Most authorities do not understand whats the security risk or not. It’s very frustrating. I bet there was no alert sign or board to alert tourists about no flying of drones. It’s all messed up. Pardon their lack of knowledge and ignorance. the public can be a snitch at times.

  31. KeBugCheck on September 14, 2020 at 11:52 am

    our taxpayer money put to good use
    moronic cops wasting time with drones while our sisters are getting *****

  32. Raghav on September 14, 2020 at 11:53 am

    4:19 , he was drunk for sure lol

  33. Pravesh Kumar on September 14, 2020 at 11:55 am

    You always shows bad thing s in India in your videos .
    And not show s the Beauty of our country.
    If you thing our country not much better then wth are you doing here .
    You no what we love and care all races in the world .
    But some people always think negative about us .
    By the way
    These are our laws you don’t fly a drone without license.ok

  34. Nevin Jojy on September 14, 2020 at 11:57 am

    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

  35. shailendra thakur on September 14, 2020 at 11:59 am

    actually i think those police officers were also confused to what to do in such a condition…………

  36. linda p on September 14, 2020 at 11:59 am

    It must be entertaining for your wife and family to walk you in and out of your adventures by phone. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  37. Ramakrishna Babu on September 14, 2020 at 12:00 pm

    Andaman islands are very sensitive high security zone…

  38. Som Srivastava on September 14, 2020 at 12:06 pm

    BRO KARL IM AN INDIAN AND IM GONNA TELL YOU THAT IT IS 100% allowed to fly drone in india, that island should have some kind of an issue or rules like that but I have seen many foreigners in India at Delhi Mumbai and even in my school flying drones! Yes I’m saying the truth

  39. sunrise on September 14, 2020 at 12:06 pm

    7:09 lol, cheeky. Well done.

  40. ANKIT SINGH on September 14, 2020 at 12:07 pm

    Fucking man
    Laws are laws you don’t give your security advice

  41. captain776 on September 14, 2020 at 12:08 pm

    I live in Thailand 15 yrs. u need a permit here to fly a drone here. Big fines and jail if no permit

  42. Foodie Couple on September 14, 2020 at 12:08 pm

    You can not fly drone there

  43. Pieter deli ho on September 14, 2020 at 12:11 pm

    Well my mavic mini is safe if I bring it there

  44. Patrick Moniz on September 14, 2020 at 12:11 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

  45. akankshit jha on September 14, 2020 at 12:13 pm

    You must know the law of India, for Indians flying drone without getting it registered in India is illegal, and you also need to take permission before every flight of drone. Adding to it, Andaman and Nicobar is a sensitive place. And foreigners are not allowed to fly a drone.
    And don’t tell that you didn’t know the law, because ignorance of law is not an excuse.

  46. Anant Kumar on September 14, 2020 at 12:14 pm

    Visit my city, **India’s and Asia first railway**enjoy with me

  47. Abhinav on September 14, 2020 at 12:17 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.

  48. Ritam Ghosh on September 14, 2020 at 12:17 pm

    Next time before visiting someplace, please read the dos and don’ts. Andaman and Nicobar islands have very strict drone restrictions. It was very stupid and irresponsible.

  49. Pieter deli ho on September 14, 2020 at 12:17 pm

    What drone did you fly?

  50. Al96 on September 14, 2020 at 12:18 pm
