The Delhi High Court has made a decision to postpone the discussion related to gambling legalization in India. Chief Justice DN Patel and C.Hari Shankar who head the Delhi High Court feel that it is for the best for discussion to be delayed until late November.
Avinash Mehrotra, a social activist from India, is the fierce opponent of legalized online gambling. He believes that activities like poker or betting should be banned because these are based on chance, not skill.
Earlier this year Avinash Mehrotra filed a Public Interest Litigation lawsuit. One of the goals of this lawsuit is to remind the National Capital Territory of Delhi that gambling is a matter of state and need to be dealt as such.
The All India Gaming Federation has a completely different opinion to that of Mehrotra’s. They believe that gambling not only raises skills, awareness and improves the user’s perception; it will also be a significant addition to national finances.
