    Legalization key to tackle rising illegal gambling, experts say

    India’s authorities lack a coherent approach when it comes to tackling rampant illegal gambling, with criminal syndicates often enjoying political patronage from a ruling class which has publicly opposed legalization of the industry. The country’s approach to tackling the problem is as fragmented as the legislation covering the sector.
