The news report adds that nobody can facilitate or organize any online games involving gambling in the virtual space. Furthermore, people who violate this law will be liable for legal action. The amendment bill also covers ‘games of mere skill’ in consideration of a “wager, bet, money or other stakes.” The bill tabled in the Tamil Nadu assembly also includes more conditions.  The bill adds, “The offence committed by a company, person, in charge and responsible for the conduct of the business, at the time of the offence, as well as the firm shall be deemed to be guilty of the offence and is considered liable to be proceeded against and punished.’

The statement of objects and reasons of the bill stated, “Playing games like Rummy, Poker etc., using computers or mobile phones for money or other stakes which are addictive in nature had developed manifold in the recent times.

As a preventive measure for suicides and for the purpose of protection from getting addicted to online gaming, it was decided to impose a ban wagering or betting in virtual space by appropriately changing the critical enactments.”
