In June, a division bench of Hyderabad High Court directed TS government to allow petitioner companies, who runs online rummy, to run their business outside Telangana till further orders. The bench was trading with batch petitions of several companies based out of Delhi, Mumbai and Hyderabad which tested the Ordinance issued by the government in making “Online Rummy” game below the Gaming Act by revising the provisions of Telangana Gaming Act, 1974. The bench gave the matter until July 3 for hearing the arguments of the TS advocate general.

The committee for petitioners companies said the game of online rummy was a game of skill and not just a game of chance. Even the Supreme Court had given several verdicts on this issue. The Telangana government could not have issued an Ordinance to prohibit the game by amending the Gaming Act, and it does not have the competence, they pointed out.

Addressing to the matter, the Hyderabad High Court has given an extended grant to the government to let petitioner companies that organise online rummy, to carry on their business outside the state of Telangana until January 27.

I always hate talking about myself because it feels weird to talk about myself honestly. Ever think that it's weird? No? Just me? My bad. Always hungry, always sleepy and in between always writing. Hope you won't mind!
