Digital India is the need of the present generation and people are chasing each other in the aspect of money. They are eager to earn money quickly without any efforts to be made in order to get rich but, the bitter truth of the society is that there is no shortcut for success or money that is nowadays presumed to be the condition precedent for success. The Shortest way to success is gambling which is not new, and it is also prevailing in society from the time of Mahabaratha although now the methods are different to do gambling in the form of online platforms. The governing rules, regulations, and legislation were made at the time of British Rule in India for their own benefit, and to date, we are following them blindly now; there is a need for transformation in society in the aspect of Gambling Laws in India. As per the Intermediaries in India, the CERT-IN is the only authority to be able to give directions to intermediaries blocking the sites in India and not the governing websites of Foreign Jurisdiction while giving the order to Intermediaries. The subject matter related to Gambling falls under the State list, which must have to be transferred to the Concurrent List so that uniform legislation is made for the whole of India.
