Indian government insists on gambling ban

18 Dec 2018

The Indian government seems like is not going to back down on the decision they made regarding the ban on most forms on gambling in the territory any time soon. On the other hand, they do have it in mind since underground gambling seems to be getting more powerful as the time goes by and that means that soon it would be even harder to control it. In a statement that was made by the Minister Of Law, mister Shankar Prasad, the latter admitted that although legalization of the gambling industry is not desired right now, there are some things that should be considered.

Among the most important of them is that if a complete ban can be ensured, then legalization will be considered by both Parliament and state legislators, having, of course, the proper guidelines and regulations. The other members of the parliament, the ones who disagree with the gambling legalization, firstly asked what particular regulations could be implemented for a legalized gambling market. The Minister of Law and Justice Ravi Shankar Prasad was asked if he thinks that the market should be opened and he told that is under consideration. The next few months are going to be extremely interesting.
