No problem Aniket dear - The whole point of this thread was not about pointing finger at one person.
It was more about people to be reminded about safety and their responsibility towards the hobby.

Each one of us has to undertake self regulation and stick to safety precautions voluntarily.

To Add to Gauravag,

Crash is inevitable in the world of RC, however we can take some steps to avoid disasters in case of crash.

1. Use of Plastic propellers only while flying above people. CF props/wooden props can cause much damage and are hard to break off than plastic ones.

2. Reduce the AUW of the craft to the best extent possible. a 2kg craft will certainly be unstable than a 600gms craft for the same set of electronics and can cause         less damage during crash.

3. If you feel there is something wrong on that particular day like heavy wind, some radio interference, hue, fog, less visiblity etc abort the flight plan. sitting a day without using a transmitter feels much comfortable than sitting behind bars!!!

4. Last, if you feel your craft becomes unstable/about to crash try directing it to a nearest open ground possible and try landing/crashing it(whichever is possible) instead of trying to save the craft and keeping up in the air.

Happy flying.

I belong to the category of photographers first (or videographer rather). I have recently started flying a DJI phantom and found this thread useful. But beyond the safety checklist mentioned here, where can one read up the local Indian laws and regulations that apply to flying RC multi-rotors like DJI Phantom (with or without a camera)? Anyone can help with that? Tried searching elsewhere in the forum, but could not find any note on this.

I took this from here.
http://amai.in/rcflypro.php

this is a guideline for flying a powered model airplane and may well apply for multicopters too.
In addition to this , all safety procedure to prevent an accident and to minimize the magnitude of the accident should be taken care of.

Thanks for sharing these guidelines Ashok. However, what I wanted to know was, if one follows these guidelines, there is no other law / regulation / permission needed to fly a multi-rotor?

This information is from one of my friend in cine field.
If you are flying to take pictures/video,

1. you should have a valid AMAI licence
2. some sort of approval that the craft is completely capable.
3. letter of permission from the commissioner of police(COP) indicating the place of flying and date of flying. ie, if you want to take a picture of another location, you have to obtain permission another time!!

this is all that i know. there may be more. for general rc flying these are not required.
Experienced people can pitch in please, as my knowledge is limited about this.

Thank you so much Ashok. Appreciate your time.  Hats Off With such set of rules though, I am more inclined to break them because I don't see myself going to the Commissioner's office to get a permission to fly a DJI phantom! Sounds unreasonable! I do believe rash drivers on the road are so much more dangerous than a DJI with a gopro flying in the air! Hope to see these policies become simpler in the future! May be governments may want to come up with clearly listed no-flying zones so that for all other areas, hobbyists are allowed to fly and film!

Anwar sir I saw that man who lost his 15k multirotor in Peru was using Dji he could have selected hover mode or return to launch mode .... This also concludes that we should not panic if something wrong does happen because if we keep calm than we can handle a worse case scenario in a better manner isn't it ??

I saw that video too..  He mentions that he took off before a GPS lock so he couldnt activate RTH. Turns out that one of the gimbals on his spektrum tx malfunctioned causing the crash.
