Welcome to the Sixth edition of Insights Weekend Debates. You can access details of last Five debates here.

Should Betting Be Legalized In India?

Five days ago, the CBI Chief opined that betting should be legalized in India. Former England captain Geoffrey Boycot has also expressed the same opinion in the past. But in India, The Public Gambling Act of 1867 prohibits gambling.

As usual, laws in India often fail to deter interested people from doing things that are not meant to be done according to those laws. Gambling and betting is pervasive in India. Some argue that legalising betting would make state exchequers fat.

We would like to know what you think.
