Lottery draws in Punjab have been paused since March 2023. It is unclear when they will start again, but updated information will be posted here when its available. Any organisation saying they are running Punjab lotteries is a lie and should be reported immediately. You can do so by contacting us, using the links at the bottom of the page.
The Punjab State Lottery has been running since 1968 and is administered by a wing of the Finance Department of the Punjab Government, with the aim of providing a clean and transparent lottery. It holds various monthly 'Bumper' lotteries, as well as draws celebrating major festivals throughout the year.
On the date of the draw, retailers return details of the tickets that haven't been sold, so these are not included in the draw. The Punjabi State Lottery Director is also at liberty to increase or decrease the number of tickets in each draw after the scheme has been announced. Draws take place in the Zila Parishad Building, located in Ludigarh, Punjab.
All winners of Punjab State lotteries are required to submit a claim form along with additional documents proving ownership and identity.
