The Long Term Effects of Gambling in India

Gambling in India was regulated by the Public Gambling Act of 1857. The Act was probably derived from the Gaming Act and the Betting Act enacted by Parliament of the United Kingdom. Before independence, horse racing in the Bombay Presidency was permitted. In the Bengal Presidency, Act VIII of 1862 authorized subscription, prizes, and staking on horse races. After the Constitution of India came into being in 1950, gaming issues were divided. State legislatures have the power to enact laws pertaining to betting and gambling. Lotteries are mentioned in Entry 40, List 1 of Union List.
