1) It is  illegal to tap the  phone of individuals and will result in prosecution of the person responsible for breach of privacy.

2) Even if  the police were to record the phone conversations, they need to obtain permission/ Order for interception of messages in exercise of powers under Sub-Section (1) or Sub-Section (2) of Section 5 of the Telegraph Act, 1885, and demonstrate that there is a public emergency or a threat to public safety.

3) The permission to tape phone conversations are only granted by the Highest ranking Secretary/ Police official of the state.

4) if you suspect any incident of Phone tapping, the legal recourse available to you are as follows:

Option 1: Unauthorized tapping is in violation of the right to privacy and the aggrieved person can file a complaint in the Human Rights Commission.

Option 2 : An FIR can be lodged in the nearest Police Station when unauthorized phone tapping comes into the knowledge of the person.

Option 3: Additionally, the aggrieved person can move the Court against the person/company doing the Act in an unauthorized manner under Section 26 (b) of the Indian Telegraphic Act which provides for 3 year imprisonment for persons held for tapping

Hope this helps.
