Some foundations of the eGaming framework are expected to be out soon, and several government agencies are fully evolved. They aim to ensure much ground is covered in the final framework, thus achieving this goal that has been a long time coming.
Thus, there is an inter-ministerial activity drive with secretaries of IT, finance, sports activities, youth affairs, and dwelling. In addition, are also the officers from the Department for Promotion of Internal Trade (DPIIT) and Niti Aayog.
The New Delhi center is drawing up a thorough framework, which will regulate online gaming corporations worldwide. It will also be responsible for regulating proposals for time-bound consumer information retention and creating strong grievance redressal mechanisms.
The government is the apex industry body for India’s online skill gaming industry, with a mission to take it international. The center aims to facilitate recognition for the industry of Online Skill Gaming, particularly since it is one of the Indian economy’s sectors.
The objective the government aims to achieve through the framework is to ensure best practices in online skill-based gaming globally. Establishing effective self-regulation for its members as well as other stakeholders like player protection, it will facilitate global recognition for the industry.
Moreover, the government bases the framework on certain principles, including responsible gaming, transparency, and integrity. The framework is a structured gaming law that ensures players enjoy the thrill of online gaming safely, transparently, and responsibly.
For everyone affected by the gaming sector, including the industry itself, the players, and the government, this framework is important. There is a pressing need to acknowledge the significance of responsible online gaming, which the regulatory framework ensures.
Meanwhile, the online gaming sector is fully ready and committed to working hand-in-hand with the government in making the framework work. The government has set up a central inter-ministerial task force that will identify a nodal ministry, understand best practices, and recommend uniform regulatory mechanisms.
