Experts are advising state governments to regulate online games instead of banning them

Experts are advising state governments to regulate online games instead of banning them

The online gaming industry has started to receive immense attention from the state government, and most of them are planning to ban online gaming. States like Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh have already decided to ban apps like Rummy and Poker to make sure that the youth of the state are safe. The move to ban online games was made due to the fact that there is a rise in reports of suicide caused by online games. The online gaming industry was very successful during the lockdown, and it is time for the governments to take a look at the ban. Niti Aayog has recommended that a regulatory body must be set up to drive the community in the right direction.

The user base of online gaming is more than 628 million gamers, and the industry is well set to contribute to the economy. Online gaming has also attracted investments. The rise in the use of smartphones has been the main reason why online gaming was able to make a high impact. The online rummy industry is speculated to be worth more than 2000 crore, and companies like Octro have witnessed heavy growth in the year 2020. This leaves us with the question of whether it is right just to ban the games and stunting economic growth.
