I have a driving license issued by the Indian government (I'm citizen of India). How can i use it in Indonesia? Not for driving taxi but for regular use as a visitor. Do I need to apply for new license in Indonesia?

Yes, as a tourist you can use your own license, but you will also need to get an International Driving Permit (IDP). In India you can get this from your local RTO office, procedures will vary slightly but here's the requirements for Karnataka.
