Karnataka High Court Asks State Government To Act On Online Gambling Regulation


The Karnataka High Court has once again asked the state government to make a decision on how the state will treat online betting and gambling services. In February, the state government told the court to bring a law to regulate the industry.

This court nudge came after a petition by Sharada DR pointed out at the lack of regulation for online gambling. The petitioner had made a representation to the state government last year and followed it up in October but did not receive any response. Subsequently, a petition was filed with the high court, seeking a ban on the same. The state government issued that people from any part of the world can gamble online and the matter might make the central government a necessary party for the same. On the contrary, the high court directed the state government to act upon Sharada DR’s representation.

The petitioner has addressed the following concerns.

  • The High courts of Tamil Nadu and Gujarat have directed their state to regulate online gambling.
  • Karnataka has no rule in place to track whether any game involves skill or chance. Offline rummy is considered to be a game of skill but that could not be entirely true for online games.
  • These online games are in vogue and can be accessed by children as well if not regulated.
  • The pandemic has increased the usage of such services, and several states have regulated online gambling and betting too.

In the recent past, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, and Tamil Nadu have tightened the laws around gambling in order to bring it within the legal scope. The state of Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu have prohibited all games involving stakes, be it skill or chance-based. The state of Kerala tweaked its gambling laws and has declared rummy as a game of skill. Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Karnataka, and Gujarat are also in the process of contemplating restrictions for online real-money games, gambling, and betting.
