The All India Gaming Federation (AIGF) has strengthened its advisory panel with the induction of three new experts including former Supreme Court judge, Justice Vikramajit Sen.

IA press release issued by AIGF states that it has decided to strengthen its advisory panel to ensure maximum player protection and responsible gaming.

Speaking on the initiative, Justice Sen states,

"As online transaction based gaming has grown by 30% over last year, self-regulation for this ever expanding Industry is extremely important. To overcome the blurred lines, the AIGF Skill Games Charter provides the very foundation for responsible gaming, user integrity, player protection, and best practices for member operators to ensure ethical practices to safeguard the consumer interest. To further contribute to the process, I am excited to be on the advisory panel of the AIGF, which has vetted the charter and play a role in guiding the Industry body and its stakeholders forward as the sector grows."

Since its inception in 2016, AIGF has worked with relevant legislative, judicial and executive bodies to demonstrate the importance of its self-regulation mechanisms and highlight the economic and social benefits of this sector.
