Hi, what are you looking for?
Many states like Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Tamil Nadu, and Kerala have tried to ban real-money gaming in recent years.
The ruling is a major victory for real money gaming companies that had criticised the bill as arbitrary and overreaching.
e-Sahamati is currently available as a mobile app and a web portal, with Aadhaar authentication being one of its use cases.
The state government's open API is expected to act as a facilitator but data sharing protocols are yet to be put in place.
The tax raids on Gameskraft offices in Bengaluru come at a time when it is opposing the state's new gambling law in court.
Apart from outlawing games of skill, the bill revised clauses and definitions to bring online gaming under regulation.
While the bill doesn't specifically detail what's prohibited or allowed, it does make room for betting on one sport.
