Automated trading

I would like to know if automated trading is legal in India or not. If not, is there any way for the authorities to find out if a person was doing automated trading? I’ve heard that brokers keep track of IPs from which each order is fired, so if this IP doesn’t belong to the place I live in (but in the same city), will that be a legal issue?
