On what basis & merit has the files which were already in public domain as per Indian Copyright Act have been deliberately deleted? If a picture is already in public domain since its copyright has expired and can be reused freely, how the contributions made by me over last 4 years deleted entirety, some of which were credibly in public domain?

Request kind attention towards PD Images taken before 1955Edit
Sir, the following Images taken between 1930s and 1947 when the subjects first rose to office in British India and later in independent India (In 1947) have been wrongly deleted.These images are clearly PD-India and legitimately old enough (more than 74 years old) to be undeleted and kept.

Deleted image returnsEdit
Regarding Commons:Deletion requests/File:LCA Tejas.jpg, is File:LCA.jpg the same image? It was readded to the WP Tejas article with the comment "the image is the same as what was there earlier but was removed from storage". Thanks. - BilCat (talk) 15:04, 27 August 2016 (UTC)
- I think it's the same, likely a sock of the earlier uploader but as I don't have access to deleted stuff here I'm pinging @INeverCry: to check on that possibility. cheers. —SpacemanSpiff 15:47, 27 August 2016 (UTC)
