Wow, I could not imagine better picture and dedication! Thank you very much!!! You really know what I like! ;)
According to the name of species, this is Calochroa falvomaculata flavomaculata (Hope, 1831). It is divived into 3 subspecies, with only nominative one known from Asia (all tropical part of this continent), two other subspecies: ssp. sexignata (Mandl, 1954) and ssp. lorenzi Werner, 1993, are known from Africa.
The specimen from your photo is a male :)
By the way, if you agree I will add this nice tiger beetle picture to the theme Tiger beetles of the world :)
Best greetings and once again thank you for this great honour! :)

A beautiful composition and an excellent shot Haraprasan, considering the conditions under which the capture was made. A very nice and metallic looking guy with awesome mouth parts. I'm sure Radomir would give an exact ID.

Strange to see a beetle on a train! You managed a good shot of this colorful one despite the shaking. Good colors and details and the jeans made a good background for him.

This is a fine macro of a Tiger Beetle that would please our friend Radomir immensely.
The sharpness and lighting are great and the POV allows the iridescence to show well.
Thanks for sharing this beauty,
