Indian Lottery Laws
Many people think that playing the lottery in India is not allowed, however that is not the case. Lotteries, and gambling in general, are decided on by an individual state basis and there are many states that allow people to play the lottery, whether it be online or at a land-based lottery retailer.
All lottery draws in India are the subject of the state, therefore are run separately depending on that states government. States have the authority to control lottery games in their particular jurisdiction and in turn, make sure all lottery draws that take place are run fairly and comply with the rules and regulations of that particular game. Some of the states which allow lottery games to be played include Goa, Punjab and Sikkim Governments.
