It should be fine to carry it in public places(hoping you don't have any criminal intent :p). In places where they have metal detectors and scanners like malls, metro, etc. they might frisk you and ask for the reason of carrying such a thing though.

thank you very much to clear that thing :)
I don't have criminal intent (if nobody try to mess with me :p ) though i have intent for self defence (as you know na that delhi is not a safe place )

i will tell them that since i am a student so i need scissor to cut printouts to do my assignmets in college (doing assignmets at home should be illegal :D indeed assingments should be taken as crime against students :p )
and it is needed to carry digital assignements and i use it to do some metal works in metal workshop classes
also my face looks like an innocent boy's face :D (don't laugh :p )
so i hope they will believe me :D

and which knife you will recommend strictly according to my needs ?

Well I see why you want one. Truth is even I carry a Swiss knife in my backpack coz of the many handy tools. Though the one I use is of very cheap quality and came as a freebie with something. I am not so sure about what the best one will be for you. May be others can help.

Its legal, but get pepper spray for defense
This is a utility tool, not a weapon
If you make it a habit to take it everywhere, be careful in advance of places where they are not allowed (college fests, concerts etc)

thanks to all to help me out :)

after many hours of reading about many swiss knifes, i decided to go with either outrider (because its knife is locable) or 15 tool swiss knife (on flipkart) because both meet my requirements (but not all requirements)

i will buy them from any of these locations (in link)

You want victorinox only? Check out gerber (bear grylls edition is cool) or leatherman also, their multi-tools have everything you want except for usb drive

Leatherman is a tad better than gerber in terms of solid build. Get one from amazon if you can have someone carry it for you. It'll be a bit costlier from India. Once you use leatherman you'll not go back to victorinox

i just checked the gerber and leatherman on their websites
i found that they look more dangerous and looks like dedicated tool,
since i need a compact multi tool (which doesnot look like a dedicated tools) , and i need it for home/college use only so i am back to victorinox :)

You worried about pliers? It looks like that only when all the tools are out. Get what you like though, a victorinox is fine too, esp for the usb. just make sure it has that shield with the cross on handle.

i can manage without pliers
knife with usb have very limited functions (compromising other functions) so skipping usb too
so i decided to go for 15 tool or outrider
Flipkart.com | Victorinox Outrider Pocket Swiss Knife - Pocket Knife
Flipkart.com | Victorinox 15 Tool Swiss Knife -

i will buy them from local stores (address given in victorinox website)
so i will keep in mind to check to sheild with + sign in it
also i will look for the word "victorinox" on largest blade (as instructed at their website)
to make sure its genuine ;)
