Most of the Rummy lovers have this question in their mind, is online rummy legal in India?
The one-word answer is Yes. Playing rummy online legal in India.
Gaming is legal in all states in India with the exception of Assam, Odisha, Sikkim and Telangana exempt “games of mere skill” from the definition of gambling.
In 1967 the Supreme Court ruled that the game of rummy is a game of skill and playing rummy does not amount to gambling.
Over the past few years, Different High Courts have quoted the apex court’s decision and stated that law enforcement authorities cannot interfere with the game of rummy played with stakes.
In 1996, a three-judge bench of the Supreme Court affirmed its 1967 judgment and ruled that games involving a substantial and preponderant degree of skill fall within the definition of ‘games of mere skill’ and added that betting on horse-racing is a game of skill outside the ambit of gambling.
In 2015, the SC noted that observations of a 2012 Madras High Court order which held rummy for stakes to be illegal did not survive and deemed that order to be withdrawn.
Based on this legal background, various legal experts and jurists have opined that online rummy is completely legal in India.
