Dear Samir

I see that no one replied to your question about spots on pomegranate fruit (Pestnet 13319). There is a web page with some info on the diseases of the crop in India. 


Of the ones listed, anthracnose would be the best bet. Whether it is the primary cause or gets in after damage by eg a sucking insect i can't say. I suggest that you have a chat with agricultural experts in your area. 

Best wishes

PS I have adjusted two of the images so that you can see the spots more clearly and perhaps the fungal structures (black dots) in the spots, especially in IMG-20170831-WA0018.
