On the other hand, Gambling on the internet is really hard to stop and a law will mean regulating the sector and allowing the casinos and betting on cricket and other sports.

This is not the first time that the top law panel has discussed the feasibility of legalising gambling in India.

However, the final decision is left with the Parliament to legalise the casinos and sports gambling in India because the issue involves the enactment of a law which is a matter of examining by the Law Commission and the Government of India.

“It (betting and gambling) is already happening through the internet and it is hard to stop in the absence of an updated law,” a member of the commission said.
