  • Sports betting should definitely be legalized

    If sports betting isn't being made legal ,punters a still going to endup placing bets with European and Australian firms (via e-wallets,friends or other illegal organizations) where our government(india) would not even get the revenue.Also this will allow to reduce the amount of black money as the winnings are usually taken as cash for which tax is never paid.

  • Yes gambling should be legalised

    If you legalise betting like many of the wester countries have done...You have the chance tk regulate it using youe laws so people dont end up ruining families. Also govt can tax it and get an income from it. I regulated practice is much better dan a unregulated illegal one.

  • Yes, It will generate more funds, White fund

    Already a lot of people are betting in non legalized where people some time gets cheated also. And also govt is not earning anything from this, once legalised Govt will earn and criminals will not earn anything. This will also reduce Black money, As money used in betting is always black.

  • It can generate more tax

    It will decrease corruption and black money in india.. If its regulated in well manner. Reduce the corruption in the game: Now because the betting is illegal and the huge money that is offered by the bookies, who are not caught, the players will be tempted to take the money. If the batting is made legal and the bookies are registered, the players might be wary of making transaction with them.

  • I strongly believe that betting should be legalised in india

    In a country like india where government fights to raise fund and the people fights for employment . I think these both problems can be solved by legalising betting as the government can earn taxes and the people can get employment from my point of view betting is another game with economic benefits....As we think about the middle class man they are more prudent than the rich and they very well know where to invest their hard earned money...

  • These are the main reasons!!!

    Let us look at 5 reasons why betting should be legalised in India:

    Will bring in more revenue to the government: During a series there is apparently 400 million pounds being bet and this is huge money. By making betting illegal, the government hasn’t been able to stop, it might be a good way raising some money by the government.

    Reduce the corruption in the game: Now because the betting is illegal and the huge money that is offered by the bookies, who are not caught, the players will be tempted to take the money. If the batting is made legal and the bookies are registered, the players might be wary of making transaction with them.

    Few forms Gambling are already legal in India: While betting is a form of gambling, other forms like betting in horse racing and the Casinos already exist in India. So when gambling already exists in India, it can give green signal to other forms like betting in sports. There are accusations that betting on horses are rigged sometimes, so in sports it might a fair game if sportspersons are not involved in betting.

    It’s not bad as it is only predicting: Just like a lottery, it is all about predicting the winner unless it is rigged. In a team game like cricket it is very tough for a result to be rigged. So people can make money by predicting the outcome of the match there is no wrong in it. Anyway we have plenty of Babus, who are looting the nation through corruption. So there is nothing wrong by making it legal.

    It’ll help people delink from the underworld: At present the betting racket is run by the underworld dons. So there is a good chance the people betting face a danger to their life. If the betting is made legal then all the bookies and agencies will come under the purview of the law and there will be more stability to the people, while ensuring more income to the government.

  • Yes sports betting should be legalised in India

    This is the best solution to prevent match fixing issues to happen again. Its time Indian Government act and legalize sports betting in india. India should stop following old outdated laws which have no value now. Do this and it will save the sports especially cricket. This has to happen.

  • Yes betting should be legalized.

    Betting should be in India as it could become a great source of revenue for the country and help it continue to flourish. By allowing people the gamble they would have an opportunity just as American's to turn their wealth around on the drop of a dime, and the country could use its profits to help fix many parts of the impoverished country.

  • Betting should not be legalized in India

    1. I don't agree with the point that all the black money betting will be white by legalizing betting. Black money money betting will remain black. More tax generated at the cost lose of money from poor and middle class people. Can we develop welfare society at the cost of troubling these classes?

    2. Middle class is not involved in betting right now. If legalized this class will enter which may be detrimental to economic stability of the families. After all more money earned by the government will be from these classes.

    3. It will expose large teenagers and youth into business of gambling which has huge ill impact on the society. ( Think how do they use if they earn lot of money by gambling)

    4. It is certainly true that spot fixing etc. can't be checked by betting.

  • No betting is just like a cheating with our society

    Its having a vast disavantages..
    1- betting is temporary....Some time works some time not just like a lottery.... And as we know how our young generation wants money faster, they egrly fall into gambling or betting and starts depending on it.

    2- if betting be legalised i n india in sports.... Players are also involving in it....
    3- cricket is like a worship in india....Think when people already know the result of matches...

  • No,betting should not be legalised.

    Before doing something we should thoroughly gauge its efect on indian society.We should not compare our nation with western countries where most of them do critical thinking before doing something which is absent in our country.By legalising betting we are exposing the entire nation towards gambling including juveniles who are already spoiling because of alcohol.Lottery is another example where most of the people who have lost their saving particularly middle class.By legalising betting we cant curb it even 50% because most of the money involved in betting are black.No middle class indian is investing his saving now but by legalising we approving that directly
