In this way, my study examines the problems encountered in the implementation of anti-doping policies and their ethical validity within the Indian context. They analyse, for example, the National Anti-Doping Agency Act, so that there could be a clear understanding of these existing measures and their impacts on the sports fraternity. This study provides an in-depth assessment of how efficient these regulations are at curbing doping by considering not only quantitative but also qualitative evidence. It takes every aspect including the athletes’ awareness, testing method and implication into account to present a clear picture. In addition, it looks at the moral ramifications of those laws as well. Therefore, the main goal behind it is to address the issues related to athletes’ welfare, the notion of unfair sports rivalry, etc. The interdisciplinary perspective is applied in this study by combining various aspects of sports science, ethics, and law for extensive scrutiny of the matters. Additionally, it considers the wider societal and cultural factors which affect doping culture in India. In the end, the findings of this study are meant to give information concerning both the effectiveness and ethics involved in the enforcement of strict doping rules within Indian sports to policymakers, sports organisations, and the general population. The research adds to the debate concerning evolving anti-doping efforts and their effect on athletes’ wellness and credibility in Indian sports arenas.
