Gujarat government is going to change its current gambling laws. The changes would include a total ban on online gambling. The city has already imposed a ban on a number of online video games, which was thought to increase aggression in children.
A K Singh, Ahmedabad city police chief, has asked the Gujarat game department to consider changes to gambling laws. He believes that the existing gambling laws only consider physical gambling and betting.
“Recently, the CID crime branch and home department officials had held a meeting to bring changes to gambling laws. It is tough, as gambling in some parts of the world is legal, while in India it is illegal,” Singh said.
