Fantasy Sports has reportedly contributed around INR 13,500 Crore in taxes to the Indian government over the last five years.

The analogy is reportedly drawn in the way that when you select stocks, you expect the money to multiply into more. It is the same with fantasy sports, as you are expected to choose players according to their performance in a particular match. Many people play fantasy sports to stay connected to the sport that they admire. Fantasy Sports is the next big thing globally as well as in India.
