Advocates’ Association Urges Government To Ban Online Gaming


Concerned about children getting addicted to online games, Bengaluru’s five year law course advocates’ association has urged the Karnataka government to impose a ban on online gaming apps. The association states that these games pose a threat to the health of children.

President of the Advocates’ Association, S. Umesh stated that the association will take a legal route if the government does not take any immediate action. The petition was made to the government, in which Umesh said that online gaming applications are becoming a greater problem than single-digit lottery. The lotteries have destroyed numerous households in the past and were also the root cause of many suicides in the state a few years back. 

Umesh and his association is also claiming that online games border on gambling. Additionally, the association believes that students who are studying online due to the COVID-19 restrictions are allegedly being lured into online games, betting and gambling.

“Though some gaming companies try to make a distinction between ‘game of skill’ which is legal and ‘game of chance’ which is illegal, in reality, most games promote betting and children are falling into the trap. There is also no transparency of the internal financial transactions of the gaming companies, as there is no clarity on what percentage of the total amount collected is given away as prizes,” the association said.

In the past due to similar complaints of gambling and suicides, some states like Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Kerala have already banned online games that involve payments.

“We demand an immediate ban on all online gaming apps, on the lines of Tamil Nadu and other states, in Karnataka. While lakhs of people are getting addicted to these games, the bigger danger is of children, who are now pursuing studies online, being lured into betting and gambling,” Umesh said.
