Legality of Betting in India
« on: May 03, 2015, 11:46:28 AM »
Several websites originated from US and UK hosts online betting on football/tennis matches. Is it legal for an Indian to put money for betting on these websites?

What I understand from different websites and online material that online betting/gambling is a grey area in Indian constitution.

Request your views and answers.

Those websites are hosted in countries where betting and gambling is legal.

now when an Indian bets in those websites they are entering into a contract in that website hence it is not governed by Indian law.

now since in India it is not legal hence non of the indian banks or credit cards will work in those websites.

hence you cannot invest in those websites, so story closes there itself.

first of all don't bet its is a terrible thing everyone loses ultimately.

in India it is Illegal and these days foreign websites are not taking Indian customers thats actually very good.
