The Tamil Nadu government has brought out an ordinance banning online gaming involving betting in the backdrop of a recent spate in suicides by gamers, who had allegedly lost money online.

The ordinance states “people who are found gaming will be punished with a fine amount of Rs. 5,000/- and six months imprisonment.” and “people who open/keep common gaming house will be punished with a fine amount of Rs.10,000/- and two years imprisonment.” The ordinance also bans electronic transfer of funds for wagering, betting and distributing winnings or prize money.
