Tamil Nadu’s Strict Law against Online rummy sites in India

Tamil Nadu has passed a law banning online rummy in India. The Supreme Court ruled in 1968 that rummies are a game of skill and not a gambling activity. Last year, Tamil Nadu implemented the Gaming and Police Laws (Amendment) Act 2021, banning and criminalizing real money online games in the state. The Bill was opposed by several gaming companies represented by senior advocates. They argued that young people lost their savings through online gambling addiction. Tamilnadu government conceded that the game may be a 'game of skills' but it held on to the notion that it loses its skill factor when played for stakes.
