Delhi High Court dismisses PIL against Playwin

Delhi High Court has dismissed the PIL against Super Lotto, India's first online lottery promoted by Sikkim Government and marketed by Playwin Infravest. The PIL filed by Delhi advocate Arun Maitri on behalf of a NGO 'Public Redressal Forum' had sought a ban on Super Lotto on the ground that it violated Lottery Regulation Act 1998.

The court in its ruling said that since the lottery tickets were sold in suburban towns of Gurgaon, Faridabad and not in Delhi, the cause of action does not arise in Delhi. And the Court dismissed the PIL on the ground that its jurisdiction does not fall in Delhi. The ruling has come as a big relief to the Playwin bosses who are currently embarking on an expansion plan to start new lottery games through Maharashtra and Karnataka governments.

Meanwhile Maitri told exchange4media that he's open to file a fresh PIL against Playwin either in Punjab and Haryana High Court or in Supreme Court, which have the jurisdiction over the case.

Says M. B. Zaidi, Director- Corporate Legal, Essel Group, “If Mr. Maitri wants to file a fresh PIL, it’s not something we can do very much about. What he’ll do next, and what would be our move, I can’t comment on at the moment. The only fact that bothers me is that in the previous PIL, important facts were withheld.”
