One of my friend who is an Indian Resident and stays in Maharashtra where buying lottery tickets is legal, has
successfully bought a dubai lottery(Millenium Duty Free Dubai) ticket using debit card transaction. If outward
remittance for buying lottery tickets of foreign country is not allowed by Fema then how was he able to buy the tickets?
And he inquired the foreign lottery company and they said they had sucessfully payed back winnings to the Indian
residents who had played through web by doing Bank transfers to Indian accounts. They even display the names of the winners. How did they successfully remit the winnings through bank transfer if Fema doesnot allow the same?
Is there any workaround by which the winners of online foreign lottery are able to transfer there winnings back to
Also I have checked Millennium Duty Free Dubai, there have been 2 winners who had purchased this Dubai lottery online and have won crores of money by the same:
1. Prabin Thomas

2. Farhaan Arman

My question is will these people face any legal issues as they have transferred foreign/dubai lottery money in crores
back to India and pay its taxes without any issues?

No they will not face any legal problems as they did not enter into a contract as par Indian law as those lottery companies are not based in India.

So those who buy those products or services of foreign companies, they are governed by those foreign contracts of those countries not India.

India RBI is not bother about money coming to India, Thats great for India./

Money going out of India is what RBI is bothered.

hence its fine

one can participate in the international lotteries since they are not regulated by the gambling laws of the India.
Your friend can either bring on the money by the method provided by the lottery website if he wins or keep it onto the website for use in future to buy more lotteries.
It is not illegal to participate in the online lottery from India however if someone who participates in the lottery wins it, then they have to get the tax deducted from the state authorities.
