Online Gaming needs regulation

Gaming is a state subject in India. Each state is supposed to frame and implement its own anti-gaming laws. In July 2018, the Law Commission 276th report stated – “legalizing betting and gambling is not desirable in India”. Still, no state came forward to ban online gaming. This inaction is leading to a rampant increase in illegal gambling and black-money. Though it is not possible to ban betting and gambling altogether, effective regulation is the only way out.
