Punjab Lottery online schemes banned


Chandigarh, Feb 01: The Punjab government decided to ban all types of online lottery schemes in the state, an official spokesperson said.

The ban, under Section 5 of the Lotteries (Regulation) Act 1998, would not only check illegal lottery business but also give a boost to the state''s tax and non-tax revenue, the spokesperson said after a Cabinet meeting here.
