Justice Mudgal calls for regulating sports betting expeditiously
ActIT Jammu, Projects, Java,, C# Training Jammu NEW DELHI, Oct 13(Agencies): To regulate or not to regulate sports betting in India is not the question. The question, as articulated by Justice Mukul Mudgal, former Chief Justice, Punjab and Haryana High Court and Chairman, SC-Probe Panel, IPL 2013 Betting and Spot Fixing Scandal is, why regulation is slow to come by.
Speaking at the FICCI Conference on Regulating Sports Betting and Sports Law here on Saturday, Justice Mudgal gave several reasons for regulating sports betting with a sense of urgency.
He said that the Government can earn substantial amount of revenue from taxing these activities; it is taking place in an unauthorized manner in the country which is threatening the integrity of sports and players; some grass root sports programs in the country could very well do with the money received from taxing sports betting; unauthorized betting is providing revenue to the criminals in the society which is being used for other illicit purposes; and there is an exposure of the law abiding citizens to such criminals.
Without regulated betting it is very difficult to detect and conduct investigation on sporting fraud, Justice Mudgal emphasised.
He said one of the biggest threats to the integrity of sports besides doping is sporting fraud. Sporting fraud being the umbrella term which would cover all kinds of activities which are a threat to the integrity of sports like match fixing, spot fixing, tanking, point shaving amongst others.
Justice Mudgal said the rate at which the winnings from betting should be taxed can be decided by the government. He felt 20% on the winnings would not be high, especially considering that in some jurisdiction like Austria it is at 28% and in the UK it is up to 25%.
He, however, cautioned that any regulation that may be proposed at a future date needs to be well thought out and should be done after extensive consultation with all the stakeholders whilst evaluating the social conditions.

The former Chief Justice of the Punjab and Haryana High Court, Justice Mukul Mudgal, says, "It is a clear case of cheating the spectators. Spectators who buy tickets are deprived of fair play if players deliberately underperform to their potential. A case of conspiracy is also attracted for cheating the public who had parted [with their] money for the match. But a person who makes betting cannot complain of cheating, as betting is illegal in India."
In this context, Justice Mudgal, who is associated with various sports bodies, underlined the need for a law to make betting legal. "If there is a law, then if odd or unusual betting takes place, a case of cheating will be attracted."
IPC Section 420 says, "whoever cheats and thereby dishonestly induces a person deceived to deliver any property to any person, or to make, alter or destroy the whole or any part of a valuable security, or anything which is signed or sealed, and which is capable of being converted into a valuable security, shall be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term, which may extend to seven years, and shall also be liable to fine."
Senior advocate Raju Ramachandran shared the sentiments of Justice Mudgal. He said: "the players [accused of spot-fixing] are cheating spectators who are expecting value for money for the game. But if a player dishonestly gives away runs; or a player bowls a wide or a no-ball or a player drops a catch, it becomes an intentional act of cheating the spectators."
Senior advocate K.V. Viswanathan, who endorsed the views of Justice Mudgal, said: "in this case cheating is made out as the players are cheating the public who bought the ticket in good faith to watch a fair match.
