  • High Council to hear a plea for a law banning betting and betting on online games.
  • The karnataka The government argued that cybercrime has become a major problem over the past three years, while stressing the need for a law against online gambling.
  • Senior Advocates Mukul RohatgiAM Singhvi, and Shyam Divanrepresented the associations of gambling companies.

The Supreme Court on Friday agreed to hear a plea from the Karnataka government challenging the Karnataka Supreme Court ruling that removed legal provisions prohibiting betting and betting on online games.

Senior advocates Mukul Rohatgi, AM Singhvi and Shyam Divan, represented the associations of gambling companies, and argued before a bench of judges S. Abdul Nazeer and V. Ramasubramanian that the issue was whether it was a game of skill or game of chance or gambling.

The Karnataka government claimed that cybercrime has become a major problem, citing the filing of 28,000 cases in the past three years, while stressing the need for an online gaming law to maintain law and order. It further argued that people have died by suicide and that online gaming has ruined many families, so it was necessary to deal with the ill effects.

The state government’s plea read: “The Karnataka Police (Amendment) Act, 2021 criminalized the betting, betting or risking of money on the unknown outcome of an event.”

On February 14 of this year, the Supreme Court overturned the government’s ban and legal provision criminalizing playing games of skill, including online games, and betting.

The Supreme Court has issued a notice to the All India Gaming Federation and skill-based gambling companies. It ordered that this case be flagged with a similar case, where the government of Tamil Nadu has challenged the decision of the Madras High Court.

The Karnataka High Court had said the law was unconstitutional and there can be no ban on online skill games. The state government argued before the highest court that the Supreme Court made a grave mistake by not taking into account the material it produced in connection with cases registered by the police authorities.
