I want to carry my empty metal water bottle on flight with carry on when  I fly domestic in India. Is it allowed through security ? 

It is not vaccuum or insulated container. Just plain metal bottle with a cap.

Metal water bottles on flights

Allowed. ( Unless CISF feel it can be used as a blunt weapon)

Is it necessary to carry the empty metal water bottle with you as carry on luggage?

I understand the necessity to carry a filled metal water bottle. Don't understand the necessity to carry a empty metal water bottle.

People get the water bottle filled as they board the plane.

When I go to birding trips the organizers usually provide bottled water which are often gets shared , often unawares. I fill my personal bottle and get to use exclusively . A whim , or some kind of territory marking you may say

In uSA having water in it at security means they order you to toss the bottle. I agree and go over to the trash bin and quickly empty it and proceed onward where I can refill it..

For most of the world, passengers are restricted to carry on board only a small amount of "liquids". (In case the liquids are not harmless...)

India may be different, I have seen very lax "security" there...

While airports may have water taps available after security to refill your own empty container from, they often don't advertise that fact, so the shops inside charge very high prices for packaged water.

I have flown with an empty metal vacuum flask in my hand luggage, without any challenge.

Reminds me of the time my wife had made lemon concentrate and filled a water bottle and kept in in the refrigerator in the side panels where water bottles are kept.

In the middle of the night, wanting a drink of water, i took it out and took a healthy swig......

Thank goodness it was not VA's concoction.
