The Public Gambling Act, 1857 had governed the gambling industry’s actions in the country before the constitution came to life. The gaming act was based heavily on the gambling legislation which was enacted by the United Kingdom’s parliament. Post the enactment of the Indian constitution, multiple areas got distributed among the Centre and the states to handle the legislative part. Betting and gambling became the exclusive domain of the state’s legislature, which means only the respective state has the authority to formulate laws in that domain. Indian states like Andhra Pradesh and Telangana imposed a ban on online gaming and betting platforms, even though various state high courts have included them as games of skill.
