Breaking: Tamil Nadu Cabinet Approves Online Gaming Ban


In latest news reports, the Tamil Nadu cabinet has approved an ordinance banning online games in the state. As per media reports, a cabinet headed by Chief Minister MK Stalin approved an ordinance banning online gaming in the state on Monday. According to news reports, the ordinance will be promulgated once the governor gives his nod.  This news comes after the Supreme Court of India had issued a notice on 10th September based on the Tamil Nadu government’s petition. This particular petition challenged Madras High Court’s judgment which struck down the state’s previous ban on online games which included rummy and poker played online on stakes.

Indian states like, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, Telangana, and Karnataka, have reportedly sought prohibition on skill-based games. But, High Courts of, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka, have quashed such reported amendments to the legislations which imposed a ban on online skill games and also called the ban as unconstitutional.

The Tamil Nadu government had reportedly moved to the Supreme Court against the Madras High Court’s order which threw out the Tamil Nadu Gaming and Police Laws (Amendment) Act of 2021. This law would ban playing games like online rummy and online poker on stakes. But, at the same time, the HC stated that there wasn’t anything in place that could prevent the Tamil Nadu state government from enacting a new law which could regulate the online gaming space.

News reports reveal that Tamil Nadu state government stated how teenagers and adults were spending their earnings and savings on online betting games. The state government reportedly argued that even though rummy could be a game of skill but when played on stakes it turns into gambling. For more news and updates, keep reading Gutshot Magazine.
