    It's always murky when the state forbids it because it's reliant on foreign companies being compliant with local legislation, and unless they have a vested interest in it, that tends not to happen. Usually the risk is greater for you personally as well, because you cop the punishment as opposed to the provider.

    I do know that there is a region in India (forget the name of it now) which is wanting to develop and sell a few online sports betting licences as a way of raising revenue, and Betfair is lobbying pretty hard to make that a reality, but until that happens all the operations I know of in India are illegal.

    As betting is illegal in many part of the world including India. But then also many people still do betting on cricket matches.
