Abstract

Through this paper, the authors seek to delineate the contentious issue of legalization of gambling on sporting events in India within the circumscribing limits of the thriving legislative framework. Adopting a sequential examination of the issue in hand, the authors having engaged in an exhaustive analysis of the Indian Gambling Laws endorsing the objectives of inclusivity proceed towards a comprehensive illustrative perusal of arguments espousing for and against the cause of the issue in hand. Sensitive to the ideological force guiding the movement for the Pro- Legalization Agenda, the paper in its latter half makes a concerted effort to propose constructive structural solutions for the concretization of the change argued for before concluding the matters clarifying the authors stance on the issue vis-à-vis underscoring the “Legislative Dynamism” argument.
