Indian state planning to make online rummy ban permanent

201 Views

After issuing a temporary ban on the playing of online rummy in mid-June, the government for the southern Indian state of Telangana is now reportedly planning to introduce legislation that would make this prohibition permanent.

According to a story from Asia Gaming Brief citing a report from The Times of India newspaper, the government of Chief Minister Kalvakuntla Chandrashekhar Rao is set to consider the specifics of a permanent ban on online rummy during a special cabinet meeting later today before introducing the measure to legislators on Friday.

If ratified, the permanent prohibition could see online rummy players as well as those who offer or promote the game face prosecution while operators that had previously filed court challenges against the temporary ban would be forced to amend or re-file their appeals.

The newest of India’s 29 self-governing territories after being split off from the neighboring state of Andhra Pradesh in 2014, Telangana has a population of almost 35.2 million while Rao’s Telangana Rashtra Samithi political party dominates local politics with a 60% majority in the upper Legislative Council along with holding 90 of the 119 seats in the lower Legislative Assembly.
