When I run the command in osgeo4W shell

gdalinfo -json C:\Users\Gurminder\Documents\Git\Dump\s1a-ew-grd-hh-20160725t043517-20160725t043617-012300-01322b-001.tiff

I get a large json of my Ground Control Points in my Geotiff on osgeo4W shell

I am writing a python script where with gdal, I am trying to transfer GCP's from one file to another, this file has 411 GCP's, for transferring this huge list I am planning to create a loop with gdal_tranfer and send iteratively all the GCP's to the new file.

From python by using os.system() I can run gdalinfo but I cannot save the returned result into a python variable, is there any way of saving the entire json returned by gdalinfo into python variable?

I've done this with calls to curl, here's a snippet. The trick is to use subprocess.check_output instead of os.system:

import subprocess
layer_name = subprocess.check_output("curl -s {0}/{1}?f=pjson | json -a name".format(service_url, layer_number), shell=True)

So in your case, perhaps something like (untested):

import subprocess
ret = subprocess.check_output("gdalinfo -json C:\Users\Gurminder\Documents\Git\Dump\s1a-ew-grd-hh-20160725t043517-20160725t043617-012300-01322b-001.tiff", shell=True)

Since you are getting json back, you might be able to do the following, otherwise you might just get a string back instead of json (untested):

import json
import subprocess
actual_json = json.loads(subprocess.check_output("gdalinfo -json C:\Users\Gurminder\Documents\Git\Dump\s1a-ew-grd-hh-20160725t043517-20160725t043617-012300-01322b-001.tiff", shell=True))
