You guessed it! Jiorockers is completely illegal
Jiorockers is a piracy website so, it does not own any rights of any of the content that it uploads on its website. That is a direct violation of the Copyright law of India. Hence, all of the content it uploads & it’s entire website is not legal.
But why are they considered to be illegal by the law?
As I’ve mentioned in the previous point they don’t have any rights of the content that they upload on their website. That’s a violation of the law. Also, piracy websites such as Jiorockers cause a lot of financial damage to the production houses.
So, with so many negatives on their side & of course breaking the law multiple times, is what makes them illegal.
