All India Gaming Federation (AIGF) Lauds Meity For Bringing Regulatory Clarity to Online Gaming Rules

The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) today, notified the amendments to the Information Technology (Intermediary Guidelines and Digital Media Ethics Code) Rules, 2021 in relation to online gaming.

Welcoming this move, Mr. Roland Landers, CEO, All India Gaming Federation, said: “As the oldest, largest, and most diverse industry association for online gaming in the country, we are grateful to MeitY for notifying the amendments to regulate online gaming under the Indian Information Technology Act, and acknowledging the long-standing demand of the gamers and the online gaming industry.”

We believe this is a decisive first step for comprehensive regulation for online gaming and, will propel the industry to compete globally, as envisioned by the Hon’ble Prime Minister. We are especially grateful that the Government recognised the industry demands and provided light touch, but comprehensive regulations, which will support innovation, boost Create in India and Brand India, and propel India’s Techade.

These rules will go a long way in promoting consumer interest while helping the industry grow responsibly and transparently and will also help in curbing the menace of anti-national and illegal offshore gambling sites, which have been proliferating in the last few years.

We look forward to assisting the industry transition to the self-regulatory model envisioned under the rules and use learnings from the years of work that has been undertaken at the All India Skill Games Council (AIGSC), the oldest and largest voluntary self-regulatory body for online gaming.

The Government has maintained a very open and transparent approach throughout this process and heard various stakeholders across the online gaming eco-system, since May 2022. At AIGF are committed to continue our engagement and provide complete support to the government in making online gaming a cornerstone of $1 trillion digital Indian economy.”
