Can you do freelance gold mining in India or do you need a permit? If you find it, are finders keepers or do you have to pay tax on your treasure?

No freelance mining is allowed. Mining license is a must. Anything done without license is illegal and punishable. Sovereign is the owner of everything recovered from below the surface, including in one's own compound accidentally - mining, treasures, archeological findings, etc.
