Does assignment override the right to royalty under copyright laws in India?

No. As per the Indian copyright law, the assignment agreement must specify and include royalty and any other consideration payable to the owner of the copyright or his legal heirs during the term of the assignment.

Further, the owner of the work may make separate agreements for different exclusive rights vested with him. The royalty for such agreements may not be affected by terms of other agreements with assignees.
