India’s Law Commission proposes legal betting and gambling

The Law Commission of India submitted its report to Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad recommending a number of changes in the law for regulating betting and generating tax revenues from it. It also made reference to legalisation of “online gambling”.

The report states that unregulated online betting exists in sports and elsewhere, and that it is better to have official products that can be taxed and regulated. The authors of the report include senior judges.
