Absolutely ridiculous rule (with regards to photography) .
With this rule if any of you have put up pics on your facebook page of you in the flight deck
or managed to click away a beautiful pic of that approach into goa or srinagar then
You could be be in violation of a stupid rule that was drafted in the year 1937 !! When will DGCA grow up ?
I guess airliners (dot) net would have to be banned in India. :ugh:

From my memory the Rules of the Air (India) apply any time when in India
OR over flying the continental Indian Airspace OR on an Indian Registered Aircraft any where else.. !!
in the first case they had unauthorized personnel inside the cockpit and in the second case they took photographs of a defense airfield, which is prohibited.
Imo, your fine as long as you don't take pictures where prohibited.

Rule 13 is quite contradictory considering the fact that AIC 7/2004 actually permits passengers to take photographs except at defence aerodromes
AERONAUTICAL INFORMATION CIRCULARS (http://dgca.nic.in/rules/aero-ind.htm)
That's what happens when you CUT & PASTE regulations from other countries :*

Action will be taken against the defaulting airline/individual for violating the provisions of the Aeronautical Informati on Circular 3 of 1997 and Rule 13, which is punishable under the provisions of Schedule VI to the Aircraft Rules, 1937.
Will the airline be penalized if a passenger uses his camera? Is videography part of photography?
Cyril that's an interesting observation. Contradicting indeed.

Unauthorized Entry Into the Cockpit
Aeroflot Flight 593 crashed in Siberia in 1994. At the time of the crash the pilot's 16 year old son was the sole controller of the Airbus A310. Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aeroflot_Flight_593) Air Crash Investigation Video
