Madras High Court to Deliver Ruling Today on Online Gaming Ban Legislation

Comments Off on Madras High Court to Deliver Ruling Today on Online Gaming Ban Legislation

The Madras High Court is about to deliver its verdict today on a series of petitions challenging the online gaming ban law enacted by the DMK government earlier this year. The law, which came into effect after thorough public consultation led by Justice Chandru, is facing opposition from industry associations and top gaming companies.
A crucial decision was made in August 2021 when the High Court declared the online gaming ban provisions introduced by the AIADMK government as unconstitutional. The appeal is now pending before the Supreme Court, along with a similar appeal from the Karnataka government.
Despite the pending appeal, the Tamil Nadu government proceeded with another law, initially introduced as an ordinance and later enacted as an Act through the legislative assembly. The upcoming decision is expected to have a significant impact on gaming law jurisprudence. Regardless of the outcome, the losing side is likely to file an appeal before the Supreme Court for the final verdict.
