Online Betting

Advisory No. DM/15/2022-DM, dated 06.04.2023

Earlier, the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting had issued an advisory directing private television channels and digital news publishers to abstain from displaying advertisements or promotional content related to betting sites. Despite this, the Ministry has been informed of recent instances where news publishers have violated the statutes/regulations.

Now, the Ministry has taken strong exception to such practices and urged all the stakeholders, including the media platforms and the various online advertisement intermediaries to immediately refrain from showing such advertisements and promotional content.

Also, it has been provided that in case the news publishers, etc., are found to be non-compliant with the aforementioned advisory, the Government would be constrained to take appropriate action under the various statutes.
